Dear Education Leaders:

We are planning a series of regional A-F town halls throughout the st ate. These town halls will provide a forum to answer your questions regarding A-F letter grades and how the new accountability system impacts you and your school/LEA.

Equally important will be discussions on how to use your letter grades, and the data determining them, to drive academic improvement; tips on marketing and communicating the A-F system to parents and the public; suggestions for those schools qualifying for school improvement and other important topics.

You will be receiving a communication with dates, locations and additional information soon!

Here's the link to our webpage dedicated to the new A-F letter grades. Here you'll find additional information and resources on the A-F system and a link to the English version of the A-F Letter Grade Guide.

For your convenience, a Spanish version of the new A-F Letter Grade Guide for Parents and Educators can be found by clicking here.

Professional Regards,

Ryan Ducharme
