The Ohio Department of Education is expanding its investigation into evidence of improper reporting of attendance data to the 2012-2013 school year for four districts.
While many states are struggling to create school accountability systems that are easy to find, meaningful to parents and filled with useful data, Ohio has been praised for the design and understandability of its new A-F report cards.
As part of an ongoing effort to provide better information for parents, the Ohio Department of Education today added data to school and district report cards on the opportunities for, and performance of gifted students.
The Ohio Department of Education has recalculated the 2011 report cards for six districts to include test scores for students who had been improperly excluded from the calculations by local officials.
Green efforts are putting three Ohio schools in a national spotlight. They are among a group of 48 schools nationwide receiving the U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School designation. Each school is an outstanding example of reducing environmental impact and utility costs, promoting better health for students and staff, and incorporating environmental education, including civics and green career pathways, into the curriculum.
Metro Catholic School in Cleveland, Milton-Union Exempt Village School in West Milton and West Geauga High School in Chesterland are models of a comprehensive approach to being green in learning and operations.
