Mishawaka School Board met Tuesday to discuss the A to F grading system


Mishawaka, Ind. The Mishawaka School Board met Tuesday evening to discuss a questionable flaw with the A to F Accountability Measurement System.

The system measures schools and students on test results, enrollment and attendance. It also relies heavily on academic growth from grade to grade.

The board now is calling on the state to identify and revise areas of the school accountability system that was established under the former State School Superintendent, Tony Bennett.

"We're just looking for a fair system that will come out as the legislature said we need to change the A to F rubrics and make sure that it's a fair and equitable system measuring all schools equally," says the superintendent for Mishawaka Schools Dr. Terry E. Barker

The School Board presented a resolution to the issue at Tuesday night's meeting. The board agreed with it, but plans to make some revisions before the next meeting, and a possible vote.
