OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Oklahoma State Board of Education unanimously approved a new A-F school report card system on Thursday.

The new system still uses A through F report cards and will still use the core benchmarks like improvements in math, English and science. But also adds other metrics like absentee rate, post-secondary readiness and achievement by English language learners.

“We are not approving numbers,” State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister said, “we are approving an approach in how we hold schools accountable.”

Hofmeister says the new report cards take the more human elements of education into account.

The recommendations will be sent to the legislature for review and then on to Gov. Fallin for final approval.
