Ohio releases 2018 school report cards

COLUMBUS (WDTN) -- The Ohio Department of Education has released its annual school report cards.

The 2018 Ohio School Report Cards have been released and the Ohio Department of Education says there’s been an increase in student achievement statewide. 

The reports unveiled Thursday use an A-to-F scale to grade schools overall and on components such as achievement on state tests and graduation rates.

“This year’s report cards show improvement in districts in every corner of the state, at all levels of wealth, large and small, urban, rural and everything in between,” said Paolo DeMaria, superintendent of public instruction. “Each of Ohio’s students can achieve, and the report cards provide us with reasons to celebrate. They also identify areas for improvement, and we’ll use them to drive conversations on how we can better serve Ohio’s 1.7 million students. As we work to implement Ohio’s Strategic Plan for Education, Each Child, Our Future, we’ll continue to build on the improvement momentum we’re seeing.”

About 40 percent of public schools got an A or B overall. Less than 10 percent got an F.

For the first time, districts and schools earn overall letter grades. The overall grade is calculated by using results in the six components: Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Improving At-Risk K-3 Readers (previously known as K-3 Literacy Improvement), Graduation Rate and Prepared for Success.

Districts and schools also received A-F grades on each of the six components and most of the individual measures.

More than three-quarters of districts received a “C” or higher, with more than a third receiving a “B” or higher.

Approximately 40 percent of school buildings received a “B” or higher.
