2016 Ohio School Report Cards Released

Thursday the Ohio Department of Education released the annual Ohio School Report Cards.

Users can find the grades and other data for all schools and districts, including community and other schools, at reportcard.education.ohio.gov.

“Ohio has raised expectations for students to reflect what is necessary for them to be successful in college, careers and life. This year’s report cards and the grades we’re seeing reflect a system in transition,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Paolo DeMaria said. “They reflect new tests, higher achievement targets and more challenging expectations. Improvement is happening, and with time, it will begin to show on the report cards. There are many ways that parents and communities gauge the success and improvement of schools and districts — the report card is one of them. At the same time, we know schools and districts will use these report cards to have discussions about performance and make decisions about instruction and improvement strategies.”

Districts and schools were graded on six components for the 2015-2016 school year. The components are Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation Rate, K-3 Literacy and Prepared for Success. While the department has given letter grades on most of the individual measures within the components for several years, new this year are letter grades on each of the six components. More information about the components can be found here.

Last summer, Ohio lawmakers extended “safe harbor” provisions to give students and schools time to adjust to the new standards and tests. During the safe harbor school years, schools may not use test results in any decision to grant credit to a student or as a factor to promote or deny a student’s promotion to a higher grade level. The only exception to this safe harbor provision is the Third Grade Reading Guarantee. Safe harbor also does not apply to graduation requirements.

Report Card Components:

K-3 Literacy

Students who are reading proficiently in third grade are five times more likely to achieve college and career readiness than their non-proficient peers. That’s why it is essential that Ohio’s youngest students who are not on track with their reading receive the help and support they need to be successful. The K-3 Literacy component looks at how successful the school is at getting struggling readers on track to proficiency in third grade and beyond.

Progress

We know that not all children start out at the same place with their learning, but every student should learn and grow throughout the school year. The Progress component of the report card looks closely at the growth that all students are making based on their past performances.

Achievement

Each year, children take state tests in math, English language arts, science and social studies to measure how well they are meeting the expectations of their grade levels. The tests match the content and skills that are taught in the classroom every day and measure real-world skills like critical thinking, problem solving and writing. The Achievement component of the report card represents the number of students who passed the state tests and how well they performed on them.

Gap Closing

Ensuring success for every child means that schools must close the gaps that exist in the achievement of our students that may be based on income, race, ethnicity or disability. The Gap Closing component shows how well schools are meeting the performance expectations for our most vulnerable populations of students in English language arts, math and graduation, so that all of Ohio’s students can be successful.

Graduation Rate

All students should have the support and guidance they need to successfully graduate from high school. The Graduation Rate component of the report card looks at the percent of students who are successfully finishing high school with a diploma in four or five years.

Prepared for Success

The ultimate measure of a school’s quality is the preparedness of its students once they leave. Whether training in a technical field or preparing for work or college.
