State Percentages for 2016 Ohio School Report Card

Earlier in 2016, the State Board of Education reviewed the necessary percent of students scoring proficient or higher on each state test for the Indicators Met measure on the 2016 Ohio School Report Card.

The board decided to maintain the 85 percent for students who were in 11th grade during the 2015-2016 school year and took one or more OGTs.  Acknowledging that 2015-2016 was the first or second year of new tests in English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies, the State Board decided to slightly increase each percentage from the percent used in 2015.

How does this impact my district or school?

Recent changes in Ohio school law extend the time districts and schools have before they are accountable for all measures on the Ohio School Report Card. There will not be an overall grade for a district or school until 2018.

A state provision called safe harbor gives schools, teachers and students more time to adjust to the new state tests. In most cases, there no longer will be consequences tied to the results of the state tests given in the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 school years. Additionally, teachers and principals will not use value-added ratings from state tests for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school years as part of their evaluations or when making decisions regarding dismissal, retention, tenure or compensation unless they choose to use the data.
