How does the A-F System work?
A–F Ratings are based on multiple, valid, objective measures of student achievement, including state assessments; graduation rates; and college, career, and military readiness (CCMR) outcomes. Ratings are based on defined criteria,
not a fixed distribution. The system provides fairness so that every school system and campus can earn an A [39.054 (b ) “The mathematical possibility that all districts and campuses receive an A rating”]. In the A-F Refresh, ratings will continue to be fair for school systems allowing for schools to be graded on student achievement or student progress, whichever provides the higher grade.
