SALT LAKE CITY -- The state of Utah is set to publicly release the first-ever set of letter grades for the state's schools under a new evaluation system.
The A-F grades for each school will be revealed Tuesday by state officials. The new system was passed in the most recent Utah legislature.
Associate State Superintendent Judy Park says the grades will increase accountability for schools. She acknowledged, however, that some aspects of a school's success can't be measured by a letter grade.
Critics say the new grading system is a flawed measurement that is only measures the wealth or poverty in a community.
Republican Senate President Wayne Niederhauser told KSL there are six Utah high schools that received F grades due to a measurement that requires that 95 percent of students participate in testing.
