The grades were delayed while lawmakers crafted legislation that renders the grades moot, protecting schools from the impact of poor performance on the state’s new standardized test, the ILEARN exam, which was administered for the first time last spring. 

The bill that gives schools a two-year reprieve from consequences was rushed through the Statehouse and signed by Gov. Eric Holcomb last month.

The law says that a school’s A-F grade for the 2018-19 school year may not be lower than that same school’s A-F grade for the previous year. In order to determine the final 2018-19 grade for each school, the Indiana Department of Education awarded schools the higher of the two grades.

By that process, about one-third of schools received an A and another third received a B. About 85% of schools received a C or better.
