    Fifty-five schools – 2.6 percent of the schools in the state - earned an accountability grade of F last year, according to the Indiana Department of Education.

And many of those failing schools struggle to climb out of the failing category.

But an elementary school in Evansville jumped straight from F to A. 

Indiana Public Broadcasting’s Peter Balonon-Rosen explains how administrators turned the school around, and are now working to maintain its new A status.
