OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma State Board of Education has approved a proposal for a new A-F school report card system that the state superintendent says will more accurately measure depict how schools are serving students.

The Tulsa World (https://bit.ly/2hD1rVR ) reports the board unanimously approved the proposal Thursday, along with a plan for new student assessments. The state Legislature and the governor will now consider the proposals.

The education department and a 95-member task force have been collaborating on the new report card system for several months. The new system would give equal weight to student performances in English/language arts and math, as well as student growth in other subjects. It’s meant to put more emphasis on college and career readiness.

The current system is calculated based on student proficiency rates on state-mandated tests and scores in math and reading.
