Board Of Education Releases AF School Grades

December 23, 2013
By

The Indiana Department of Education issued the long-awaited accountability grades for Indiana Schools. The “A-F” ratings have been delayed for months following a state-ordered review of the system.

Within Ripley County, nine of fifteen schools earned an A rating. For the second consecutive year, all schools in the Batesville Community School Corporation received an A grade.

South Ripley Junior High School, South Ripley Elementary School, Jac-Cen-Del Elementary, Sunman Elementary School and St. Louis School also received the top grade.

Four of seven Decatur County Schools received a B grade and one school received an A. Greensburg Elementary was the lone school to receive the highest grade, while South Decatur Elementary School, North Decatur Elementary School, North Decatur High School and Greensburg Jr. High received a B.

In Franklin County, Brookville Elementary School received an A grade for the second year in a row. While other schools ranged from a B to C rating, Laurel School approved accountability rankings by posting a C grade opposed to an F in 2012.

Two schools in Dearborn County showed improvements this past year. Lawrenceburg Primary School and Central Elementary School had a D ranking in 2012, however, increased school performance to an A grade in 2013. Overall, seven of fifteen Dearborn County schools had an A ranking this year.

Indiana’s  A-F model holds schools and corporations to higher standards and provides a more accurate picture of their performance .
