As students get ready to head back to school, parents want to make sure the youngest learners are getting off to a good start.
Check to see how well your child’s elementary school performed on the 2010-2011 state report card by searching the database above. All public schools in Patch districts below the middle school level have been included. For the Cleveland Heights-University Heights School District, that includes Roxboro, Oxford, Noble, Gearity, Fairfax, Canterbury and Boulevard.
Parents should note that state testing begins at the third grade level. For a look at the most recent literacy levels for kindergarten students in your district, check out this database.
The database above includes each school’s overall ranking, the number of academic indicators—like third grade reading scores or building attendance—that a school is eligible for and the number and percentage of academic indicators the school met. It also includes whether the building met Adequate Yearly Progress and the school’s Performance Index score. Adequate Yearly Progress relates to how well different groups of students perform on state tests, and the Performance Index is based on how well all students do on the tests. A higher index means more students scored well on the tests.
The state report cards for the 2011-2012 school year will be released later than normal while the state auditor investigates whether some school districts manipulated data in years past.
