LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - State Schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz made an appearance at the Tippecanoe County Library Saturday.
Ritz was the guest speaker at the Indiana Coalition for Public Education meeting.
Ritz spoke about school vouchers, the latest on the ISTEP+ settlement and Indiana's A through F grading system.
She said a panel has been put together to address the current grading system. Ritz said they've already met several times, and made some changes.
"Instead of having a growth model with student scores compared with their peers from around the state and estimating their growth, we're actually going to be using a model that looks at individual student growth within their individual school," Ritz said. "So, that's probably the biggest change."
This was the first time the Coalition for Public Education held its statewide meeting in Lafayette. Former Lafayette School Corporation Superintendent Ed Eiler serves on the coalition's board.
