The Ohio Department of Education gave the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District a “Continuous Improvement” rating on its 2011-2012 report card, according to preliminary data released today.
The district received the same ranking last year and in the 2009-2010 school year. Out of 26 indicators — measures like how many students scored proficient on a certain state test or attendance rate — 8 were met, compared with 11 in 2009-2010 and 10 in 2010-2011. The performance index, which measures how well students performed on state tests overall, remained virtually unchanged, moving from 87.3 percent last year to 87.7 this year out of 120 total possible points.
Preliminary individual school ratings were also released today, and here are the results:
Boulevard Elementary School: Continuous Improvement
Canterbury Elementary School: Excellent
Cleveland Heights High School: Continuous Improvement
Fairfax Elementary School: Continuous Improvement
Wiley Middle School: Continuous Improvement
Gearity Professional Development School: Continuous Improvement
Monticello Middle School: Effective
Noble Elementary School: Continuous Improvement
Oxford Elementary School: Academic Watch
Roxboro Elementary School: Effective
Roxboro Middle School: Effective
There are no PDFs of "report cards" available yet, the format people are used to seeing, but results can be viewed here in an excel spreadsheet.
The ODE has been releasing report card information in batches as the state is investigating whether some districts manipulated attendance data and is holding off on releasing final report cards until that investigation is complete. In September, the ODE released preliminary information, including graduation rates.
