October 23, 2012 Auditor's Report on School Attendance Data
On October 23, Auditor of State released a Second Interim Report on Student Attendance Data and Accountability for select school districts. While there were instances of errors in reporting, the Auditor found no evidence of data scrubbing for the 2010-2011 school year for the districts included in this report. As the report indicates, the investigation is ongoing and the Auditor’s Office will continue to review attendance data for all schools. We will provide additional information when known.

Additional Preliminary District and School Report Card Data Released
On Oct. 17, ODE released additional preliminary district, traditional school, community school, and STEM school results on Ohio’s 2011-2012 state tests and several related measures. The updated spreadsheet includes preliminary district/school ratings, performance index and attendance rate information.
Spreadsheets containing preliminary results can be found by clicking here.
During the last few weeks, ODE has worked diligently to upload and verify remaining data for school improvement purposes. As we wait for additional information related to the investigation from the Auditor of State, ODE remains committed to sharing existing data so that students, parents, educators and the public can be informed about the progress of our schools.
Schools and districts have had access to preliminary student achievement data on standardized assessments throughout the summer. It is time to share this preliminary information with others, with the understanding that the data is not yet final.
ODE will not publish PDFs of the Local Report Cards until the investigation by the Auditor of State is concluded.
