Ritz unseated former Republican School Superintendent Tony Bennett in last year's election. Her office opened a review of the state's school grading system earlier this month following an Associated Press report showing Bennett's grade-changing efforts.

Tension has built recently between Ritz and Republican Gov. Mike Pence over control of education policy in Indiana.
