Microphone & Podium, Public Speaking

The Texas Education Agency on Friday will be releasing to the public a new provisional ratings report for schools across the state using its new "A through F" formula mandated by House Bill 2804.

More than 25 superintendents from Central Texas school districts will be at a news conference tomorrow to discuss their concerns about that new rating system, what improvements need to be made, and how it will affect their campuses and students.

There will be live statements from a handful of superintendents, a presentation by curriculum experts explaining the new system, and a Q & A session afterwards.

According to the Texas Association of School Administrators, more than 140 school boards across the state have adopted resolutions opposing the new grading system for schools.
