New Haven schools get graded

Forty-three New Haven Public Schools got report cards from the city Monday morning, the New Haven Independent reported.

At a press conference at the Sound School, a marine-based school overlooking the Long Island Sound, Mayor John DeStefano, Jr. and Superintendent Reginald Mayo announced which schools would receive Tier I, II and III grades. The school grades are a part of the city’s effort to promote accountability in its public schools, with top-performing Tier I schools being granted more autonomy and underperforming Tier III schools being considered for restructuring.

The Sound School was the only high school in the city to receive a Tier I score.
