The Indiana State Board of Education released new ratings for schools on Wednesday and DeKalb Eastern has earned an A grade. The ratings are based on last spring's ISTEP exams including overall scores and whether students showed improvement. While the number of A ratings doubled since last year, DeKalb Eastern is among only 48 school districts to earn the top grade.
Superintendent Dr. Stephens expressed appreciation for the recognition and acknowledged the district teachers for what they do everyday to treat students with respect and hold them to high expectations for their success.
