INDIANAPOLIS (AP): The State Board of Education is signing off on a new outline for state school grades but waiting until next year to fill in the details.
 
The board voted 9-1 Wednesday to approve new school grade categories and broadly accept the recommendations of a bipartisan panel formed in the wake of the Tony Bennett grade-changing scandal earlier this year. But the details of how those grades are determined will be set throughout next year.
 
The vote was a rare moment of unity between Democratic Schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz and the other members of the board in an ongoing education war. Ritz accused Gov. Mike Pence Tuesday of conducting a "complete takeover" of education policy over the past month. A Pence spokeswoman said he has worked "in good faith" with Ritz.
