20-percent of Alaskan schools need help

    Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) A new accountability system found one in five Alaskan schools need additional support.

    The Anchorage Daily News reports the state Department of Education and Early Development found 107 schools had low graduation rates and poor performance under current state academic standards.

    Deborah Riddle, a division operations manager at the department, said the System for School Success said the low ratings will not impact teacher evaluations or result in a loss of school funding.

    The average rating for an Alaska school on a scale of zero to 100, was 46.20.
