DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - The Ohio Department of Education released its 2013 School Performance Ratings Thursday.
The revamped system ranks districts and schools with new A-F report cards, replacing such labels as "Excellent" and "Continuous Improvement."
The new report cards feature nine graded measures, with no overall grades given.
Dayton, the regions largest district, did not fare well, scoring Ds and Fs in the nine scored categories.
Ohio Department of Education spokesman John Charlton said officials anticipate that many schools will see poorer grades initially as a result of the adjustment. The full system will be phased in between now and 2015.
