History matters in Indiana class system

22

June

Indiana is adopting a policy I've seen discussed elsewhere - one that would factor recent success into whether a state moves up a classification.

Under a measure approved this week, schools would be awarded points for success. Its equivalent of a district title would be worth one point. A regional title would be worth two, and so on, the Indianapolis Star reports. If a program gets six points in two years, it jumps up a class.

Ohio and Oklahoma have also debated using recent historical success as one metric in whether a school moves up a class and gets pitted against tougher competition (in theory).

I'm not sure how well that system would work here. I think Armwood would do just fine in Class 7A, but I think it could mean a tougher road to state for some smaller programs.

What do you think?
