State Releases District Rankings
State officials have released Ohio school and district ratings that have been delayed amid a statewide review of student-attendance data.
The Ohio Department of Education on Wednesday posted the results in a spreadsheet for now – instead of the charts, graphs and other visual elements that districts and families have come to expect.
Results are still considered preliminary as Ohio Auditor Dave Yost investigates enrollment and attendance irregularities around the state.
The Ohio Board of Education voted to release the eagerly-awaited information, in part because Election Day is approaching and many districts are pursuing levy and bond issues.
The reports are normally published in August. Schools and districts have had access to preliminary student achievement data on standardized assessments throughout the summer.
