The Ohio House has approved the change, and now awaits Senate action
Ohio schools could soon get a letter grade as opposed to the current system that ranges from academic emergency to excellent with distingtion. The Ohio House okayed legislation that would make the change.
State Rep. Kristina Roegner, a Hudson Republican, says this makes it much easier to understand how schools are performing. The grades would be phased in over three school years to replace the current five-tier system.
The measure now heads to the Ohio Senate where it is expected to get a vote before the current legislative session ends.
