Indiana State Board of Education to Hold Public Hearing on Accountability Grades

Feb 20, 2018

The Indiana State Board of Education will host a public forum Thursday at Ivy Tech Community College in South Bend - seeking public input on proposed revisions to school accountability grades.

 

This is one of four public forums throughout the state that gives Indiana residents the opportunity to weigh-in on proposed changes to school accountability grades.
 

Proposed changes include a higher significance on student standardized test performance and school graduation rates.
 

Standardized test performance plays a key part in determining teacher performance pay and school takeovers by the state.
 

If approved, the changes to the revised grades would go into effect in the upcoming school year.  
 

The final vote is expected to be held in April.
 

Proposed changes come in an effort to match state and federal standards under the Every Child Succeeds Act.

Thursday’s forum will be held at Ivy Tech Community College’s North Central Campus from 4-7 at the Ivy Cafe.
