2018 Report Cards – Update to School Choice Options Table
On Friday, the Ohio Department of Education updated the School Choice Options table that appears on the “Details” page of each traditional district’s report card.  This table reports the number of students who reside in each district who are taking advantage of nine school options.  Previously, the data were reported as headcounts based on a student’s status on March 31st of the 2017-18 school year.  Because of the migration to ODE’s new data warehouse, the numbers now represent full-time equivalents (FTEs), and the calculation uses the last status reported for each student in the 2017-18 school year.  Some districts may see differences in their numbers because of the changes to the nine calculations.
