Local school district accountability grades released

INDIANAPOLIS - Area school corporations overwhelmingly received B's in new accountability grades released Wednesday.

In Allen County, all districts received a B except Fort Wayne Community Schools, which earned a C.

The local breakdown generally matches the overall range of grades across the state - 8 percent of districts' received A's, 60 percent B's, 29 percent C's, nearly 2 percent D's and less than 1 percent F's.

The grades were the first under a new accountability calculation that resulted in much fewer A's. The same trend showed up last month when individual school accountability grades were released - fewer A's and F's but more grades in the middle.

Only one district received an F - Gary Community Public Schools. Five districts earned a D - none in northeast Indiana.
