Pres. Hampton Responds to Tabling of A-F Grades

October 8, 2012

“We’re pleased to see that the State Board of Education has tabled the announcement of the A-F grading results for our schools.  We believe parents need to know how their child’s school is performing. However, the process should be easy-to-understand and parents should know exactly how the grade was calculated.

“Any school assessment is critical to growth and improvement. We believe the letter grading system should be used to inform and guide instruction, not label and punish the children of a school.

“Schools, teachers, parents, students, legislators and community leaders should all be held accountable for public education. It will take all of us to ensure our children receive a great public education.”
