The Indiana Department of Education released the state school accountability A through F letter grades on Wednesday, Nov. 14th  and Rising Sun Ohio County Schools

   Superintendent Branden Roeder posted on Twitter that he was glad to see the district improve from a B last year to an A this year. Ohio County Middle School and Rising Sun High School earned A’s, while the elementary school received a B rating.

    “Our current accountability grades are an indication of the great education Indiana students are receiving,” said Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction. “Our work is paying off and as a Department we will continue to partner with dedicated stakeholders to ensure every school and every student is successful.”

   The IDOE says 22 percent of schools improved by at least one letter grade. The grades also come from student proficiency, largely determined by ISTEP test performance.
