No change in Allen County districts’ grades

Corporation grades for Allen County’s four public school districts remained the same as last year, Indiana Department of Education officials announced Wednesday.

The Department of Education’s rating system assigns A to F grades to schools and districts based on student performance.

Fort Wayne Community Schools and East Allen County Schools retained an overall grade of a C, while Northwest Allen and Southwest Allen County schools again received overall A grades, according to Department of Education data.

All districts either increased their total points from last year or retained the same number of points out of a total of four possible points.

The grades are assigned to traditional public schools, charter schools and accredited non-public schools, as well as schools that participate in the Indiana Choice Scholarship program or that receive state-funded vouchers.

Last month, all districts received grades for individual schools, but overall corporation grades were left off the list.

The corporation grades were released Wednesday after being approved by the Indiana State Board of Education.

Grades and points

Below are the grades and total points each district received out of a total of four possible points:

  • FWCS received a C letter grade with a total of 2.19 points. Last year, the district received 2.13 points.
  • NACS received an A letter grade with a total of 3.96 points, the same as last year.
  • EACS received a C letter grade with a total of 2.72 points. Last year, the district received 2.28 points.
  • SACS received an A letter grade with a total of 3.97 points. Last year, the district received 3.61 points.
