INDIANAPOLIS -

The Indiana Department of Education has unveiled the school accountability grades for the 2017-2018 academic year. The department says about 22 percent of schools improved one or more letter grades, with 64 percent receiving an A or B.

The IDOE says nearly 9 percent of schools improved their grade to an A, according to the state results.

"Our current accountability grades are an indication of the great education Indiana students are receiving," Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick said in a news release. "Our work is paying off and as a Department we will continue to partner with dedicated stakeholders to ensure every school and every student is successful."

The IDOE has also released the federal accountability grades for the same school year. About 67 percent of public schools received the same letter grade for both the state and federal accountability systems, with 31 percent receiving a higher grade on the state system.
