Overall and Component Ratings
The Ohio General Assembly passed House Bill 82 in June 2021, which included changes to the Ohio School Report Cards for schools and districts. Governor DeWine signed the bill into law on July 1, and it became effective on Sept. 30, 2021.
The key provisions of this bill reform Ohio’s school accountability system starting with the 2021-2022 school year. This reform was passed after years of collaborative research and design by education stakeholders, including the major education associations, business community and General Assembly.
A notable difference on the newly reformed report cards is the new style of rating. In the prior accountability system, the report cards had A – F letter grades. The new system has ratings of 1 – 5 Stars in half star increments. The report card components are rated with 1 – 5 stars.
