Indiana leaders establish 'A-F' review panel

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana's top elected leaders are launching a panel to oversee the rewriting of Indiana's school grading system one month after it was revealed former School Superintendent Tony Bennett changed the formula for a top Republican donor's school.

Gov. Mike Pence, School Superintendent Glenda Ritz, House Speaker Brian Bosma and Senate President Pro Tem David Long signed off on the new panel Wednesday. The 17-member group will consist of teachers, principals and superintendents and be co-chaired by Ritz.

Lawmakers had already tasked Indiana's State Board of Education with re-writing the school grades earlier this year. But emails published by The Associated Press last month show Bennett secretly altered the formula last September to benefit a donor's Indianapolis charter school.

Two separate state reviews of the school grades are still underway.
