The Indiana State Board of Education today took the first step in overhauling the A-through-F grading system. The Board voted 9-to-1 to replace the 1st through 4th grade point average scale with a 100-point measure, but that is where the progress ended as the meeting was brought to a halt after State Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz adjourned the meeting. Ritz says a resolution written by Governor Mike Pence's Center for Education and Career Innovation, which operates separately from the Department of Education, brought the meeting to a halt because it improperly inserted State Board of Education staff to take over the academic standards review process, which she called a violation of the law. Ritz says she has requested an advisory opinion from the Attorney General on the improper motion. A Board member withdrew the motion after Ritz left the meeting, but it is unclear whether the meeting had actually ended or was still in progress.
