The Oklahoma State Board of Education on Thursday approved permanent administrative rules for a new A-F School Grading System that designates easy-to-understand letter grades to schools based on academic performance.
Governor Fallin signed the measure into law last year. It has been a key element of State Supt. Barresi’s reform agenda over the past year.
The rules approved by the board on Thursday give guidance to districts to implement the specifics of the law. Public comment was received during a 30-day period and during a public forum and incorporated into the rules.
