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. The Ohio Department of Education began working to implement these new reforms in October with the State Board of Education.
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 will have ratings of 1 – 5 Stars. The report card components will be rated with 1 – 5 stars and more details can be found in the Component Rating Technical Documentation for the 2021-2022 school year.


Five of the report card components will receive star ratings beginning with the 2021-2022 report cards. The overall rating for schools and districts will not be reported until the 2022-2023 school year.
