See Ohio's School Report Cards for the 2016-2017 Academic Year

Ohio released its annual school report cards Thursday morning, offering parents a look at how the state grades the performance of their kids’ schools. The report cards for the 2016-2017 school year are based on 11 graded measures, including student progress from year to year, 3rd grade literacy, and graduation rates.

The current report card measures have been phased in over a number of years after changes to both state and federal educations standards.

What’s notable about this year’s report cards, according to Chris Woolard with the Ohio Department of Education, is that parents now have two years of data they can compare to get a more true sense of how schools are doing.

“We’re now in the second year of data based on the same tests so it really makes for a strong comparison of where you were at last year compared to where you are this year,” Woolard said.
