COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio Department of Education released the annual Ohio School Report Cards today.
The report cards graded districts on six components for the 2016-17 school year: achivement, progress, gap closing, graduation rate, K-3 literacy and prepared for success. Districts are given an A-F grade on each component.
“In a highly competitive, quickly changing, global economy where employers’ expectations are higher than ever, our students must be equipped with the knowledge and skills that will make them lifelong learners. With that in mind, there are many ways that parents and communities gauge the success and improvement of their schools and districts — the annual report card is one of them,” said Paolo DeMaria, superintendent of public instruction. “Having set high expectations for what our students must know and be able to do, our children and schools are stepping up to the challenge. We’re seeing increases in achievement across the state. I continue to be impressed with the dedication of Ohio’s educators and our students’ desire to learn more and more.”
Toledo Public Schools received a 'D' grade for progress and K-3 literacy and an 'F' on achievement, gap closing, graduation rate and prepared for success.
