Georgia students will be graded on a new scale

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -

The Georgia Department of Education plans to give parents a detailed look at schools' performance.

The department will release grades for schools and districts under a new system meant to go beyond just standardized tests.

The new system is called the College and Career Ready Performance Index. It was a central part of the state's successful application for a waiver from the federal No Child Left Behind performance measures.

The new system will assign a grade from zero to 100 for each school and district. The grade will be based on factors such as graduation rate, performance on standardized tests, student attendance, academic growth and success in closing the performance gap between different groups of students.
