Ohio School Report Cards

The Ohio Department of Education released the 2013-2014 state report card for each district and individual school building throughout the state.  This is the second year of the “new” state report card format, which involves different components being graded on a scale of A-F.  There currently is no overall grade for a district or building.  To put the “new” format in some type of context, if we compare our most recent results to the “old” state report card format, our district would have achieved the highest rating of “Excellent with Distinction” based upon the previous calculation format.
