If you have a child in elementary or middle school, you should find out today what grade that school received from the state this year. 

State education officials will release those grades, which are largely based on student test scores. 

The controversial A through F grades impact everything from funding to whether some schools can remain open.  High school grades are released in December. 

The Palm Beach Post reports the Palm Beach County School District's overall grade slipped from an A to a B last year.
