Grading changes on Ohio report cards, but NE Ohio results remain mostly the same
New links are here after state's website crashed
Story by M.L. SCHULTZE AND KABIR BHATIA


 
The state's website crashed this morning, but not to worry... WKSU has the results for the entire state

FOR SCHOOL REPORT CARD GRADES AND MORE INFORMATION, GO TO STATEIMPACTOHIO:  http://stateimpact.npr.org/ohio/2013/08/22/2012-13-ohio-school-building-report-cards/ 

The web site that tells Ohio school districts how they did under the state’s new grading system was so overwhelmed today that it shut down.

For the first time, the new system uses letter grades – this year in nine categories. But there’s no overall grade, making it hard to figure out just how well each district and charter school is doing. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more on some of the highs and lows among Northeast Ohio districts.

The state says no district got straight “Fs” or straight “As”

And the overall picture hasn’t changed much. Wealthier suburban districts did pretty well on the measures that rest primarily how different groups did on proficiency tests. Large urban districts did pretty poorly.

But there were some bright spots even for struggling districts. Lorain, which this year became only the second district in the state to come under an academic distress commission, got four “Fs.” But it also got “As,” when it came to gifted education and the performance of its lowest 20 percent.

The other district in distress – Youngstown – got five “Fs,” but “Cs” on the progress of disabled and low-achieving students.

And the region’s largest school district, Cleveland, got six “Fs,” but did better with gifted students.

Some of the districts are parsing the report cards well beyond the letter grades. Akron, for example, noted that it continues to do better with reading, but needs to work on math.

The state says its standards are tougher this year, and many districts came down a notch from the “excellent” and “excellent with distinction” they’d grown accustomed to. But districts like Beachwood in Cuyahoga County, Hudson in Summit County and North Canton in Stark County, continued to perform well, with each getting six “As.” 



The state’s new school report cards rolled out today.  But many people have been unable to find out how their school district ranked, because the website crashed from overuse.  Here's a new link to the district results and here's a link to the entire state... see below for Northeast counties such as Cuyahoga, Summit, Stark, Mahoning, Lake, Portage and more.
