"Fewer schools met North Carolina’s overall targets for academic improvement in the most recent year, according to new test results, even as the high school graduation rate jumped to what state officials called a historic high....The data released Wednesday also show that student performance on the state standardized tests has remained largely static from a year ago."

The grades are based on standardized end-of-grade tests in reading and math for grades three through eight, science in grades five and eight and end-of-course tests in three high school subjects. High schools are also evaluated on their graduation rate, ACT and ACT WorkKeys results and percentage of students who complete Math III.
Calculating the grade: Grades were based on a 15-point scale with an A equal to 85 to 100, B equal to 70 to 84, a C equal to 55 to 69, a D equal to 40 to 54 and an F equal to less than 40. Schools that qualify for an A and don’t have significant achievement and/or graduation gaps received an A+ grade. In the 2016-17 school year, it changes to a 10-point scale.
Not Met: Most students failed to show a year's worth of growth in classroom material.
Met: Most students showed they made a year's worth of growth.
Exceeded: Most students showed more than a year's worth of growth.
Grade level %: Percentage of students who are proficient
