Democratic schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz is promising greater transparency as she begins work on a new school grading formula.

Ritz pledged that her administration would work in the open even before emails obtained by The Associated Press showed former Republican Superintendent Tony Bennett had changed the grading formula to ensure a top GOP donor's charter school received an A.

But now she and 16 other members of the group writing Indiana's new school-grading formula will have the chance to follow through on that promise. They will be meeting weekly through Nov. 1 to craft a new formula.

The legislative investigators who examined Bennett's grade changes recommended the next team setting the grades needs to work in the open. The burden will lie on Ritz to carry through.
