State Board of Education of Ohio Awards High Performing Schools

Release date: 5/17/2016

The State Board of Education of Ohio today recognized two districts and 46 schools with the All A Award for earning straight A’s on their 2014-2015 Ohio School Report Cards. In addition, 53 districts and 165 schools received the Momentum Award for exceeding expectations in student growth for the year.

“Earning straight A’s is no easy task, and these schools deserve our praise,” said State Board of Education President Tom Gunlock. “This is the first year we’re presenting the All A and Momentum Awards, and the State Board of Education is proud to recognize Ohio’s schools for their hard work and dedication to excellence.”

Any Ohio school or district is eligible for the All A Award if it received A’s on all of its applicable report card measures. This is the first year the All A Award is being presented to districts and schools. Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, the State Board of Education of Ohio will recognize any school or district that earns an A on its report card overall component score.

Any Ohio school or district is eligible for the Momentum Award if it receives straight A’s on all Value-Added measures on the report card. The school or district must have at least two Value-Added subgroups of students, which include gifted, lowest 20 percent in achievement and students with disabilities.
