Release Notes for the 2017-2018 Report Cards

9/13/2018 - 2017-2018 Ohio School Report Cards released.

9/27/2018 - Additional watermarks added to some report cards. 

10/18/2018 - Additional watermarks added to some report cards, sponsor names added to community school report cards (district details page), and some Advanced Reports released.

1/17/2019 - Several new Advanced Reports were added to the report card website.

4/19/2019 - ODE updated the School Choice Options table that appears on the “Details” page of each traditional district’s report card.  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.
