Mixed results in school grades
By Tali Hunt, Staff Writer
The Indiana Department of Education (INDOE) released schools' A-F grades for the 2016-2017 school year on Oct. 4.
College Corner Elementary dropped from an A to a C.
Many schools throughout the state saw improvements in their overall accountability grades. Liberty Elementary School (LES) was the only school in the Union County/College Corner Joint School District (UCCCJSD) to earn a better grade this year compared to last.
Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction told EagleCountryOnline:
“I am encouraged by the results of our current accountability grades as an indication of the great education Indiana students are receiving. Our work, however, is not finished. As a Department we will continue to partner with stakeholders from the state level to the local community to ensure every school is successful and every student is academically prepared for the future.”
The improved one letter grade--from a C to a B. Union County High School (UCHS) and the Union County Middle School (UCMS) maintained its B.
INDOE's accountability grades are based on student performance, individual student growth and multiple measures (i.e. graduation rates and college- and/or career-readiness), according to INDOE's Indiana Student-Centered Accountability Webinar Series: New-Student-Centered Accountability System.
