The state Department of Education on Wednesday unveiled its first round of letter grades for about 1,300 public schools statewide. The grades are linked mostly to how elementary, middle and high school students did on key tests. Schools earned a “plus” on their grades for meeting their annual state growth targets; those whose scores dropped got a “minus.” Schools whose score rose but fell short of the state growth target got a grade only. The scale is:

A-120-200

B-105-119.9

C - 90-104.9

D - 65-89.9

F - 0-64.9
