Half of Jackson County’s 14 public schools earned higher marks in the latest round of A-F grades released Friday by the Indiana State Board of Education.

Three public schools received a lower grade, while four were unchanged. Among the four parochial schools, one received a higher grade, and two saw their marks drop.

Grades are based in part on ISTEP+ scores in reading/language arts and math and are meant to hold schools accountable for helping all students achieve academic growth and identify underperforming schools.
