Report Published by the Indiana Department of Education Posted – Mon, 08/31/2015:

In 2013, the Indiana General Assembly added IC 20-31-8-5.4  to the Indiana Code (P.L. 286-2013). This statute required the State Board to establish new A-F categories and new standards of assessing school performance. The new standards were required to be based on a measurement of individual student academic performance and growth to proficiency; and were not to be based on a measurement of student performance or growth compared with peers.

The Accountability System Review Panel, established by a Memorandum of Understanding entered into by the Speaker of the House, President Pro Tempore of the Senate, the State Board of Education, the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Governor, conducted research and provided recommendations to the State Board of Education regarding the composition of the new A-F system. The Panel presented its final report to the State Board on November 13, 2013 and presented its recommendations for the new A-F system to the State Board on September 22, 2014.

On October 29, 2014 the State Board filed a Notice of Intent to adopt a rule to establish the new categories or designations of school performance per IC 20-31-8-5.4. At its January 7, 2015 business meeting, the Board adopted proposed language that would add 511 IAC 6.2-10 to replace the old A-F accountability system (511 IAC 6.2-6). The Board adopted the final rule that establishes the new metrics of Indiana’s student-centered accountability system on May 7, 2015. The rule was approved by the Attorney General on June 4, 2015, approved by the Governor on June 12, 2015, filed with the Legislative Services Agency on June 15, 2015 and posted on July 15, 2015. The rule is effective March 1, 2016, and is applicable beginning with the assessment of the 2015/16 school year.
