The Ohio Department of Education says the new method of calculating graduation rates is a more accurate measure, but Superintendent Doug Heuer said it penalizes districts for students who take longer than four years to graduate.
On Wednesday, the Ohio Department of Education released some preliminary data from the school report cards, including four-year and five-year graduation rates. The graduation rate for the Cleveland Heights-University Heights School District fell from 92 percent in 2009-2010 to 75.5 percent in 2010-2011. The five-year graduation rate was 85.7 percent. Though the numbers could still change, Superintendent Douglas Heuer said the decrease does not reflect a change in students, but a change in calculation. “The state of Ohio is using a completely different calculation, which lowers our graduation rate. The federal calculation will divide the total number of graduates by the total number of students who began ninth grade four years earlier,” …
