FREDERICK - The state Board of Education held its November meeting in southwestern Oklahoma on Thursday, the first time it's been held outside Oklahoma City this school year.
State Superintendent Janet Barresi said the Department of Education continues to move forward with development, review and consideration of possible revisions to the new A-F grading system for schools, which was rolled out statewide in late October.
"We're continuing to receive comments, and it has drawn a lot of conversation around the state," she said. "Most of the comments are good."
Barresi said Thursday's visit to Frederick provided her and state school board members an opportunity to visit with local district and school officials and discuss the challenges the districts are facing and learn "good news" about them.
"It has been successful, and we intend to keep doing it," she said.
