Hoped-for Washington School grade revision fizzled
Although Clinton Public Schools Supt. Kevin Hime had held out slim hope that there might be an adjustment in some of the local school grades after the overall school grades were announced Nov. 8, particularly at Washington Elementary School, the local school system got no such relief when the State Board of Education revisited its controversial school grading system recently. Washington was still listed with a D+ (69) overall grade.
The other grades, which went unchanged on the state department’s website, were Nance C (73), Southwest C (73), middle school C+ (79) and high school B+ (82). None of the school administrators had expressed satisfaction with their scores at the last meeting of the Clinton Board of Education.
