Fallin on school report cards
OKLAHOMA CITY – Gov. Mary Fallin released the following statement praising the A-F report cards released Thursday by the State Board of Education. The report cards assign letter grades to Oklahoma public schools.
“As governor, one of my top priorities is to improve the quality of education for students in Oklahoma. Creating an A-F grading system for schools is an essential step in pursuing that goal. Having this new system will allow us to measure progress, recognize and reward schools that perform well, and identify those schools that are in need of improvement.
“The report cards released today give parents, students, teachers and administrators an easy way to identify success. As with any change, especially one that measures performance and demands accountability, these report cards will have their detractors. Ultimately, however, this is about what is fair and right for Oklahoma’s children, who deserve to attend schools with high standards and transparent measures of success.”
The schools in Mayes County were graded as follows: A: Adair High School, Adair Middle School, Mazie School, Lincoln Elementary School, Roosevelt Elementary School, Bernita Hughes Elementary School, Locust Grove Elementary School, Osage School, Wickliffe School, Chouteau Early Learning Center.
B: Pryor High School, Locust Grove High School, Salina High School, Pryor Junior High School, Locust Gove Middle School.
C: Chouteau Middle School, Salina Middle School, Chouteau Elementary School, Jefferson Elementary School, Locust Grove Upper Elementary School.
D: Chouteau High School, Salina Elementary School, Spavinaw School.
