Franklin a D school

Published: Monday, December 23, 2013 at 11:33 AM.

The other half of the total points is based upon components outside state assessments, such as participation and performance in accelerated classes, graduation rates, and college readiness.

Schools that earn at least 1,115 points receive an A, with Bs going to schools with 1,050 to 1,114 points, and Cs to those with between 925 and 1,049 points. In all three cases, these schools have met learning gains targets for the lowest performing students, as well as reading performance requirements.

With D schools, which tally between 840 and 924 points, there is no requirement for learning gains or reading performance.

Franklin County School tallied 915 points, and while it was just 10 points short of a C, Superintendent Nina marks said she doesn’t expect the district will appeal.

“It doesn’t appear that we have grounds for that,” she said. “Ours is going to stand.”
