GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - The new Education Accountability Act has some gubernatorial praise falling on 14 school districts around the state. Governor Bill Ritter says they’ve shown extraordinary academic growth and excellence using new performance standards.

The act passed last year and accredits schools and districts on five different levels: accredited with distinction, accredited, accredited with improvement plan, accredited with priority improvement plan and accredited with turnaround plan.

District 51 has a ranking of accredited with improvement plan. Officials say that means they’re required to adopt and implement an improvement plan, which they’ve been working on for the last year.

The new bill set out expanded indicators for success, including academic growth, as well as preparing students for college and career readiness.
