The Indiana Department of Education is set to approve and release statewide accountability grades for schools today during a board meeting in Indianapolis. The 'A-F' ratings have been delayed for months following state-ordered review of the system. The numbers being released today use metrics developed by former Superintendent Tony Bennett. A new system is currently being developed.
The Indiana State Teachers Association says the board is also expected to vote on new procedures that will “remove roles” and reduce Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz's influence as chair of the board.
