Starting with state report cards for the 2012-13 school year, Ohio will grade schools on a new, A-F scale. Look up your school district's report card here.
Ohio 2013 school report cards award public schools A-F grades in nine separate areas.
Those areas include:
In a change from past years, in 2013 and 2014 the Ohio Department of Education will not award schools or districts a single grade such as “Excellent” or “Academic Emergency” summing up their overall performance. The department expects to award overall grades again using an A-F scale starting in 2015.
Performance Indicators: A-F grade based on how many students passed state tests in each grade and subject. At least 75 percent of students must pass to get credit for the indicator.
Performance Index: A-F grade based on a weighted average reflecting the performance of students on state tests.
Value-Added: A-F grade based on a statistical measure reflecting whether students are making a full year of progress in one year of school, regardless of their level at the start of the year. (The overall value-added grade is displayed below. Schools are also graded on value-added for specific groups of students including gifted students and students with disabilities.)
Annual Measurable Objectives: A-F grade based on how much a school closes the achievement gaps between different groups of students, including students of different races/ethnicities and students who are from low-income families, have disabilities or are learning English.
Graduation Rate: A-F grade based on how many students graduated high school within 4 years of starting. (Schools are also graded on a separate 5-year graduation rate.)
2012 Rating: Before 2013, schools received one of six labels reflecting their overall performance. We have translated these labels into letter grades. However, these grades are not comparable with the 2013 letter grades. Grades marked with a * are under review by the Ohio Department of Education and subject to change. The Auditor of State says these districts improperly changed student records and kept some students’ performance from counting towards the district’s report card.

Note: Some report card data for districts marked by ** is subject to change due to "local reporting error." Report card data for districts marked by *** is under review by the Ohio Department of Education based upon 2011 findings by the Auditor of State.
