Oklahoma delays release of school grading scale

OKLAHOMA CITY — The state Board of Education is delaying the release of a new system that grades Oklahoma’s schools.

Officials had planned to release the new grades Monday, but the Board of Education voted to delay the release until its next meeting on Oct. 25.

The new system evaluates schools on an A-to-F grading scale.
