SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -The Louisiana Department of Education released annual performance grades for schools and districts across the state Thursday.
Each year, the state grades each public school on how well it is preparing students for the next grade level. This year, the Department of Education used a new formula in calculating each school’s score and corresponding letter grade.
State officials say they are raising the bar for what it takes to earn an "A" grade and they are also evaluating schools on how much progress students make over the course of a year.
