Dear EACS families, students, staff, and community members:

It is with great pleasure that I inform you of the news we recently received from the State Board of Education!  On Wednesday, November 5th, the State Board announced the A-F Accountability letter grades for schools and school districts in Indiana.  First, I am proud to say that East Allen County Schools is an “A” district!  Secondly, we have seven “A” schools, five “B” schools, and four “C” schools.  None of our schools were rated a “D” or “F” school!  I am so very proud of our staff and students!  They have worked extremely hard to achieve these goals!

Dr Folks Letter Grade

The grading system currently used by the State Board of Education began in the 2010-11 academic year.  The State Board of Education changed the labels for school categories based on student performance from the terms Exemplary, Commendable, Academic Progress, Academic Watch, and Academic Probation to easy-to-understand letter grades of A, B, C, D and F.

The new A-F labels improve transparency by allowing parents and community members to better recognize how well Indiana schools are performing and leading students to achieve positive academic outcomes.

Indiana's new A-F model holds schools and corporations to higher standards and provides a more accurate picture of their performance by incorporating student academic growth, graduation rates, and college and career readiness as measures of success.

Thanks to all of you for supporting East Allen County Schools, as we inspire in all students a passion for learning!  I am proud we are an ‘A’ district!

East Allen County Schools - Dream It. Do It.

Sincerely,

Dr. Kenneth H. Folks
Superintendent
