The results of a new statewide evaluation system that will label every school with a grade of A through F will be announced in early October, the state schools superintendent said Thursday.
Janet Barresi said school district officials will receive the preliminary results in the coming days, and they will have a chance to look over those results and correct any errors. The results have been reviewed twice by employees at the state Education Department, Barresi said.
“We're asking them to put a third set of eyes on it,” she said.
District officials have 30 days to review their results and report errors to the Education Department.
“It's absolutely critical that the data be accurate,” she said.
When the grades are released in October, individual reports will be posted on the state Education Department website for all the nearly 1,800 schools in the state.
