State School Report Cards Contain Fewer Details This Year

Sep 16, 2020

Ohio has released its latest report cards for school districts without the usual performance rankings , letter grades and some other key indicators. 

This comes after school closures and legislative changes related to the coronavirus affected the state's system for reporting and accountability. State testing requirements were waived in the spring under legislation passed as schools faced closures and the pivot to remote learning because of the pandemic. As a result, report cards for the 2019-2020 school year don't include ratings that are based on the tests that were canceled. The report cards still include information about graduation rates, enrollment, attendance and spending.
