Public schools in Utah are required to be evaluated with a single letter grade based on student test scores. But this flawed system harms schools with inaccurate evaluations that impact enrollment, funding and teacher retention. A temporary moratorium has allowed schools to use a dashboard system with multiple indicators to evaluate schools more deeply, but the moratorium ends next year, and Utah must return to school grades.
Take action to end school grading and allow Utah schools to use the dashboard system only for school accountability!
A bill to remove school grades and continue the dashboard system, HB 198, will be heard in the House Education Committee MONDAY at 2pm. Contact the committee members NOW to ask them to vote YES ON HB 198!
