Ohio Releases Final CH-UH Schools Report Card

Ohio Department of Education released final report card data for most districts in the state Wednesday.

Cleveland Heights-University Heights City Schools' 'Continuous Improvement' rating with the Ohio Department of Education was finalized yesterday with the statewide release of the state's district report cards.

Click the PDF above to see the full report card.

School and district report cards are usually released at the beginning of the school year, but that timeline has been pushed back while the state auditor investigates whether some districts manipulated attendance data.

Those nine districts identified as "scrubbing" attendance scores have watermarks on their report cards indicating that the scores could change pending the state auditor's investigation, the department reports.

Some preliminary data—without the ratings—was released in late September.

Kids who want to learn in our district can. There are many fabulous teachers at Heights and some phenomenal kids. Unfortunately there are kids who are ignorant and disruptive.These are the kids you see when you drive past the high school. You do not see the kids who are inside working. You do not see the kids who got on the bus at 6 am this morning to go to a symphony contest. You do see the kids who were on academic challenge. You do not see the kids in the national honor society. You do not see the kids who take 6-10 AP classes in high school, or are attending college while in high school. Please find a way to help improve our city rather than insulting others.

Colleen, folks like you are the reason the Heights schools are ranked in the bottom 5% in whole State according to Patch. If you insist in living in your fantasy world, I suggest you limit your postings to the Heights Observer where like minded fools gush about diversity and how great the Heights schools and the like. I think that you will be much more confortable there rather than dealing with reality. And BTW, the only way the abysmal schools will improve is by acknowledging reality and then trying to improve rather than trying to sell the big lie. Think about it.

"michael," what reality? The true reality is that the district is trying to educate a challenging demographic. The schools are not failing, the students are. Big difference. Perhaps you should go back to whining and complaining on Cleveland.com with all of the other closed-minded negative whiners dwell.

Are you drinking the kool aid as well and still trying to sell the big lie to rubes? UH resident, I suggest you join Colleen over at the Heights Observer where the rubes dominate. Just today, I picked up the latest issue and couldn't get over how many fawning articles written in a suspiciously pr type vernacular ther were, trumpeting how great your beloved Heights schools really are. Not a peep about all the illegal students coming in from East cleveland, or the crimes against persons taking place against other students as documented by the Sun Press police blotter, let alone any mention of what the fine administration and School Board are doing to address the abysmal State achievement tests which from what I read, will place the CHUH district into just about the bottom ranking next year as the State toughens the standards. But alas, all that is irrelevant when when one can gush about diversity and rebuilding all the schools and other nonsense.

michaelschwart, you present the issues in such a hyperbolic and cartoonish manner that it's difficult for anyone to take you seriously.
