Statement of Governor McDonnell on House Passage of A-F School Grading System


Location: Richmond, VA

Governor Bob McDonnell issued the following statement regarding the bipartisan passage of his A-F School Grading Bill by the House of Delegates this morning. The legislation is part of the governor's All Students K-12 Education legislation.

"I was pleased by the bipartisan support in the House of Delegates for our commonsense plan to bring more transparency and accountability to Virginia's public schools. I encourage my friends in the Senate to support this legislation that will provide a simpler way to understand a school's performance on the state's accreditation system. Parents and families will have another tool to advocate for and achieve better schools for their communities. If we aren't giving students in every zip code the opportunity for a world-class education, we have failed them. It's time for Virginia to adapt this common sense A-F school grading system that has been successfully implemented in other states and will help us continue to make real improvements in the quality of our children's education."
