A State Impact analysis shows that 165 schools across the state saw their A-to-F ratings increase after last-minute changes by former State Schools Superintendent Tony Bennett and his staff.
Three Vigo County Schools and four others benefited from improved grades when Bennett, ordered a change in how grades were calculated last fall. Here in Vigo County, three schools saw improved grades and they include Honey Creek Middle School that went from a C to a B; Farrington Grove Elementary from a B to an A; and Fuqua Elementary from a B to an A. In Northeast Sullivan School Corp., Farmersburg Elementary went from a C to a B, while Hymera Elementary went from a B to an A. In South Vermillion School Corp., Ernie Pyle Elementary went from a B to a A. Turkey Run Elementary in Parke County also went from a B to an A, according to State Impact.
