St. Peter's Lutheran School Principal Scott Schumacher suspected something was wrong when he heard the state was giving his previously A-ranked school a B on the state's A-F Accountability scale.
St. Peter's is an excellent school, he said. It scored an A on the state's first year of the program and had improved in the year since then.
So he delved into his school's numbers after scores were tallied. He discovered a mistake and successfully appealed, giving the school just enough for an A.
