COLUMBUS – An investigation by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) has determined that the Lockland School District in Hamilton County filed false attendance data for 36 students during the 2010-2011 school year, leading to artificially higher state testing results. In response to the investigation findings the Department has revised downward the district’s report card for the year and referred the case to ODE’s Office of Professional Conduct to determine if Lockland employees participated in conduct unbecoming the teaching profession.
