The Louisiana Department of Education is out with its annual performance grades for schools and school districts.
These are the first grades since the state revamped how schools are rated to comply with the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
Under the new rating system, 13 percent of schools earned A ratings compared to 20 percent under the old rating system.
