The Oklahoma State Department of Education has launcehd Raise the Grade Together -- an initiative designed to complement the release of Oklahoma's A-F School Grading System in October 2012. Raise the Grade Together will strengthen communities and school districts with support. With the Raise the Grade Together resource guide, the Oklahoma State Department of Education has provided a number of tools, tactics and strategies for fostering community conversations and planning within school districts. While no guide can be completely comprehensive, we hope this resource serves as a good starting point for work at the district level. The Raise the Grade Parent Handout provides a quick resource guide for ways parents and community members can get involved to help improve their local schools. It also gives questions every parent should be asking of their schools.
