The speaker of the Indiana House says he expects legislators will order a review of the state's A-F grading scale for individual schools.

Differing bills that would have done so failed to advance by House and Senate deadlines this week, but Republican Speaker Brian Bosma says lawmakers will take up the issue again this legislative session.

Bosma says he believes most legislators believe the state Board of Education needs to make changes to the A-F grading system that was first used in 2011.

Many local school officials have complained about the grading system, and Democratic state schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz made replacing it a top campaign issue last year.

The A-F scale was backed by former Superintendent Tony Bennett despite opposition from Indiana Chamber of Commerce and others.
