Schools to be rated with letter grades instead of stars now
Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Report cards are coming out, and they're not just for your kids anymore. Schools will be given a letter grade starting tomorrow.
It's a plan by BESE to make it easier for parents to understand just how well their child's school is performing.
Right now, schools are given stars, on a one to five star scale, but school officials says those are too confusing.
Now, the schools will get an “A” through “F” rating, which officials believe will be much easier to understand.
