Board looking to remove items from school grading system

(WFLX) - The State Board of Education is considering a plan to simplify Florida's school grading system.

The Education Commissioner wants to remove items that automatically cause a school's grade to drop. This includes eliminating SAT scores and some graduation rates used to evaluate high schools.

Overall, grades are based on test scores, graduation rates and college readiness.
