Ada schools digest 'report card' scores

Posted: Updated:

ADA, Okla. -- Oklahoma schools are still digesting their new "report card" grades from the State Board of Education.

The grades for Ada City Schools ranged from a "B" for the high school to a "D" at Washington Grade Center.

Superintendent Mike Anderson said while the system isn't perfect, it's a step forward in keeping districts informed.

"This dis-aggregates data in a better way," he said. "I think parents and patrons will get a little more information, and a little more useful information, and I think we -- as district leaders -- will as well."

Nevertheless, he said the new system fails to convey the whole picture.

"I just have a hard time in assigning a single letter grade to a school and have that fully explain what goes on in that building," Anderson said.  

Here's the overall grade for other Ada public schools:

  • C - Ada Junior High School
  • C - Willard Grade Center
  • [No grade] - Hayes Grade Center
  • [No grade] - Ada Early Childhood Center

The superintendent said he's hoping the district improve student attendance over the next year.

"We need to find a way to work together to make sure our students are here at school every day," Anderson said. "Any time we examine student learning and student achievement, we're never going to be satisfied. I don't care if we had straight A's, we want to be better."
