The Ohio Department of Education rated the Shaker Heights City School District “Effective" on its 2011-2012 report card, according to preliminary data released today.
Out of 26 indicators — measures like how many students scored proficient on a certain state test or attendance rate — 22 were met.
They received a 99.2 score on the performance index, which measures how well students performed on state tests overall, out of 120 total possible points.
Preliminary individual school ratings were also released today. The majority of schools in the district received an "excellent" rating, and here are the results:
Boulevard Elementary School: Excellent
Fernway Elementary School: Excellent
Lomond Elementary School: Effective
Mercer Elementary School: Excellent
Onaway Elementary School: Excellent
Shaker Heights High School: Excellent

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.
