Article: City Schools: Memorial MS gets ‘F’ grade

From the Las Vegas Optic

Just in time for students to return to class, Las Vegas-area school districts and the rest of the state received report cards from the New Mexico Public Education Department.

Using the PED’s A-F letter grade system — determined by measuring categories such as graduation rates, attendance and performance on standardized tests like PARCC — Las Vegas City Schools saw a gain at Sierra Vista Elementary, rising from a D to a B, but the middle school fell from a D to an F.

“That one hurts,” Superintendent Kelt Cooper said. “The middle school missed getting at least a D by one point. We’re going to appeal it.”
