ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – New results show most grades for New Mexico school districts remained the same last year despite common core tests and a revamp teacher evaluation system.
The report released Tuesday also said more school districts saw improving grades than declining ones. But only six out of 89 school districts earned an “A” grade.
District report cards largely are based on an average of a district’s individual school grades. However, they are also other measurements like graduation rates, student achievement, school board member training, and parent surveys.
State results released in August showed that more New Mexico public schools earned “A” or “B” grades last school year, but over a third still received “D” or “F” grades.
