BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — An influential state panel is spending time wrestling with how to change public school report cards, including the all-important issue of rewarding annual academic gains.

The effort is part of the state’s plan to revamp public school policies to comply with a 2015 federal law called the Every Student Succeeds Act.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/2h1iMp1) the topic was debated Monday by the Louisiana Accountability Commission, which advises the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education.

Under current rules, the growth of student achievement accounts for 7 percent of scores that translate into grades, and only applies to struggling students. State Superintendent of Education John White has proposed that the growth account for 25 percent of the score, and have it apply to all students.
