New School Report Cards Show Tougher Grading Curve

The school report cards coming home to parents this week are likely to show student performance numbers that are substantially lower than what those schools had last year. 


The State Board of Education says it’s using a different measurement this year that’s more in line with the tougher Common Core standards that are being phased in around the state. 


A spokesperson for the board says students are actually showing improvement if measured under the standards used last year… but she says it’s important for parents to know how their school is doing under the new scoring system, which more accurately measures how well students are prepared for high school, college and beyond.
