AP Exclusive: Education Board Seek Faster 'A-F' Results

Oversight of Indiana's school accountability grades is moving from the DOE to the Legislature.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Oversight of Indiana's school accountability grades is moving from the Department of Education to the Legislature in the latest salvo over control of state education policy.

Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma and Senate President Pro Tem David Long approved the move Friday after the State Board of Education wrote a letter questioning why Superintendent Glenda Ritz has yet to release the A-F grades or teacher effectiveness ratings.

The letter obtained by The Associated Press also requested that General Assembly analysts take over compiling the grades.

Ritz is the lone Democrat to hold statewide office and has been the focus of GOP efforts to undermine her authority.

Department of Education spokesman David Galvin says the board is trying to rush an "inaccurate and untested" school labeling system.

The move affects 2012-2013 grades.
