By Anna Skinner

The Indiana Dept. of Education recently released school district grades for the state. Westfield Washington Schools’ overall grade was a B for the 2015-16 school year. For the 2014-15 school year, WWS was rated an A district.

“There is widespread acknowledgement of the lack of credibility with the current assessment and the methodology used to determine our district letter grade,” WWS Superintendent Dr. Sherry Grate stated in an email to Current. “We feel strongly that other measures of effectiveness that we utilize internally in ‘real time’ provide the necessary instructional information that is more important and helpful in meeting the diverse needs of our learners. Westfield Washington Schools has a highly engaged staff dedicated to the overall success of each student, and we will continue to focus on quality growth and improvement.”

Five of the six elementary schools received an A rating, with Washington Woods Elementary receiving a B. The high, middle and intermediate schools each received a B.
