Group issues school grades for 2013

Colorado Schools Grades, the organization that rates state schools on an A-F system, has issued its report cards for 2013.

The group, a coalition of 18 business and advocacy groups, uses annual state school performance data to produce its ratings. The state data was released earlier this month. The Department of Education uses different labels to rate schools – performance, improvement, priority improvement and turnaround. (See this EdNews story for details of the latest state ratings, and search our database of districts and schools.)

Some critics of the state system feel its labels are too bureaucratic and that traditional letter grades are easier for the public to understand. But periodic legislative attempts to create a state system of letter grades haven’t been successful.
