4 Ind. school districts given failing ratings; Kokomo improves

Indianapolis — Four Indiana school districts are getting failing grades in new ratings from state officials.

The State Board of Education approved the grades for school districts during a meeting Wednesday after releasing grades for individual schools last month.

The Indianapolis Star reports that the new ratings give A's to 94 districts, while 82 received B's, 91 C's, and 18 D's. Those given F's are the Indianapolis Public Schools, the Medora Community Schools in southern Indiana's Jackson County and the Gary and East Chicago districts in Lake County.

Six districts received failing grades last year. The Kokomo and Hammond districts improved from F's last year to D ratings.
