Arkansas schools receive letter grades from department of education

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Some schools in Region 8 are failing.

That is according to the Arkansas Department of Education.

The department released grades for the 2013-2014 school year for every school in Arkansas. 

This follows the Arkansas Legislature passing Act 696 in 2013. 

It requires the state to implement an A-F grading scale for schools. 

Grades are based on student performance in math and literacy on statewide Benchmark and end of course exams, high school graduation rates and meeting improvement goals.

Schools across Region 8 range in scores. A few received F's and others got perfect scores.
