Release Notes for the 2019-2020 Report Cards

11/3/2020 - Financial Page data updated to include data submitted through the Financial Data Collection appeals window.  

9/15/2020 - 2019-2020 Ohio School Report Cards released.

This year, the Ohio School Report Cards will not feature overall grades for any district, school or career technical planning district. There will be no individual grades for given components or measures. This is in keeping with legislation passed in the spring as a result of the coronavirus pandemic that also canceled the administration of most state tests for the 2019-2020 school year. In addition, temporary changes were made relative to the content and consequences of the report cards.

This abbreviated edition of the Ohio School Report Cards will provide only available information including information about graduation rates, Prepared for Success indicators and kindergarten to grade 3 reading diagnostics. In addition, much of the usual demographic and enrollment data will be published along with other district and school operational details. This limited data still can be of value to the state, schools and districts.
