INDIANAPOLIS, IN (WAVE) - The system has faced controversy, but it remains a key factor in determining teacher salaries and school funding.

And Wednesday, the Indiana Department of Education released its accountability grades for more than 2,000 schools.

Most of the schools in Clark County, including West Clark and Greater Clark, made the honor roll.

Sixteen earned A grades, eight earned B's, seven earned C's and three other schools got D's.

Most schools fared well in Floyd County as well. Ten earned A's, four received B's, three got C's, one earned a D and Green Valley Elementary got an F a year after it had earned a C.

The new grades show that about 1,100 schools were given an A, up from about 940 schools that earned that top grade the previous year. The grades also show that significantly fewer schools were assigned an F' or a D.

Statewide, the superintendent said the numbers show an overall boost in performance, particularly in schools that historically finished with low scores.
