Due to school closures and COVID-19, the Ohio Department of Education did not conduct state testing or issue report cards for the 2019-20. A report card was issued in October 2021 for the 2020-2021 school year, but there were no letter grades assigned or rank issued. However, you may want to start exploring a school by learning about school performance in the 2018-19 school year.
Understanding the Ohio School Report Card
Ohio’s School Report Cards are designed to provide insights into school and district strengths and challenges. The Report Cards present a common set of information about all public schools – traditional district, community schools (sometimes known as charter schools) and independent schools.
While no single document can tell you everything you want to know about a school, Ohio School Report Cards can be a launching point for getting to know a school.
Ohio Report cards are generally published each September. Schools and districts receive an overall A-F designation. An overall rating of A or B means the school exceeds expectations.
Current report cards also include six different categories of information, referred to as “components”:
- Graduation Rate
- Improving At-Risk K-3 Readers
- Gap Closing
- Prepared for Success
