RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Thanks to a new state law, the public will have an easier time comparing school performance with the issuance of letter grades on report cards due for release Feb. 5. The grades will be presented  to the state Board of Education on that day.

The Department of Public Instruction will preview the report card layout, and answer questions about them, at a preview webinar on Jan. 29 at 10 a.m.

DPI has redesigned the School Report Cards so that the letter grades display for each school. The new site is created in SAS Visual Analytics and also has new functionality for easier school-by-school comparisons.
