Local schools issued grades by state board

GOSHEN — School grades through the state’s newly implemented A-F grading system were released during a meeting of the State Board of Education Wednesday morning.

Designed around a percentile growth model, the new system assigns letter grades to all of Indiana’s public (traditional and charter) and accredited non-public schools, including those participating in Indiana’s Choice Scholarship Program, by essentially comparing students within the schools to students at similar levels of achievement in other schools. The grading system does this by looking at things like end-of-course assessments, ISTEP scores, graduation rates and college and career readiness.

Grading results for area school corporations are as follows:
