Today, the Ohio Department of Education released Ohio School Report Cards for the 2016-2017 school year. The state report cards can be a helpful tool for families to learn more about their local public school districts, buildings, and community schools.
Every public school district and building received a letter grade on six components. See the components and their descriptions according to ODE below.
·K-3 Literacy - Looks at how successful the school is at getting struggling readers on track to proficiency in third grade and beyond
·Progress - Looks closely at the growth that all students are making based on their past performances
·Achievement - Represents the number of students who passed the state tests and how well they performed on them
·Gap Closing - Shows how well schools are meeting the performance expectations for the most vulnerable populations of students in English language arts, math and graduation
·Graduation Rate - Looks at the percent of students who are successfully finishing high school with a diploma in four or five years
·Prepared for Success - Looks at how well prepared students are for all future opportunities
