Feds A Throw New Curve At School Grading System

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi schools could have the scale used to assign A-to-F grades to public schools reset again this year. State Department of Education officials said Thursday that rejection of parts of Mississippi’s system by the U.S. Department of Education may make changes necessary. The federal government demands that Mississippi immediately include a score for students learning English in its system. The federal agency also objects to a performance measure of the lowest-scoring quarter of students. The current school year was supposed to be the first time since 2010-2011 that schools teach the same curriculum, give the same standardized test and are graded using the same scoring system as the year before.
