Okla. Board to Consider A-F School Grading System (Mar 29, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Board of Education is scheduled to consider adopting an A-F School Grading System so parents and students can easily see how their schools are performing.

The board will consider implementing the plan at its meeting Thursday. Superintendent of Public Instruction Janet Barresi says it will provide greater transparency for schools.

The Legislature adopted the grading system last year and Gov. Mary Fallin signed it into law.

It will use school assessment results from the 2011-2012 school year to determine a ranking designed to encourage parent and community engagement and a better understanding of school performance.

Besides test scores, a school's grade will include student learning gains, improvement of the lowest 25 percent of students in reading and math and whole school improvement, among other factors.
