“We're out there taking in ideas,” Barresi said. “I would describe the participation as robust.”

Schools received individual grades in October, and district-level grades were released this month. The state also received its grade — a C.

“This is the diagnosis,” McBee said. “The most important thing is what happens next.”

How they fared

Oklahoma schools received a C overall in reading, according to the statewide assessment. Schools received an A in science and a B in math, writing and social studies.

Statewide, schools struggle with helping the bottom 25 percent of students catch up, according to the assessment. The state as a whole earned a D in that category.

“We didn't show the growth we'd like to see,” McBee said. “That's definitely an area of focus for our state.”
