|2017 AZ School Letter Grades – Schools A Thru D|
On Friday, the Arizona Department of Education finally released the school letter grades awarded to Arizona public schools by the Arizona State Board of Education. The State Board of Education sought to delay the release, but media outlets demanded that the public have access to the public records.
Although the Department of Education (ADE) had sent out the grades to individual schools earlier, they claim that they did not have compiled data until Friday morning. Given the dysfunction at the Department, the claim is not hard to believe.
The State Board of Education lowered the cut scores that determine letter grades in order to increase the number of “A” schools.
