General Report Card Information
Why are there Ohio School Report Cards?
Ohio School Report Cards give your community a clear picture of the progress of your district and schools in raising achievement and preparing students for the future. The information measures district and school performance in the areas most critical to success in learning. Ohio School Report Cards data shows educators, school administrators and families where their schools are succeeding as well as areas where they need to improve.
Report Card Components
Schools and districts report information for the Ohio School Report Cards on specific marks of performance – called measures – within six broad categories or components. The components are Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation Rate, K-3 Literacy and Prepared for Success. The Department gives letter grades on each of the six components and most of the individual measures. This will help give Ohio parents and schools an even more complete snapshot of the quality of education they are providing their children.
Career Tech Report Cards
Students included in this report card have completed at least half of their career-technical education and are enrolled for the second half. There are five components on this report card – Achievement, Graduation Rate, Prepared for Success, Post-Program Outcomes and Federal Accountability Results.
Dropout Prevention and Recovery Schools
Community schools that serve a majority of their students through dropout prevention and recovery programs receive this report card. Rather than A-F grades, dropout prevention and recovery schools receive one of the following ratings for report card measures – Exceeds Standards, Meets Standards, Does Not Meet Standards or Not Rated (used when there are too few data to issue a rating).
Rewards and Recognition
Ohio recognizes schools for maintaining high academic achievement among their students, including many from economically disadvantaged circumstances that can make learning difficult.
