The Ohio Department of Education this week (Sept. 15) released its 2020 Ohio School Report Cards but without assigning districts an overall grade due to the cancellation last spring of state testing because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to not containing overall grades, this year’s abbreviated report cards (covering the 2019-2020 school year) do not include grades for individual school buildings or any component or measure. The report cards also do not include information about student performance on state tests, the academic growth of students during the school year, or the extent to which achievement gaps are being addressed for students.

For five consecutive years, Ottawa Hills Local Schools has received the letter grade of A for each of six components on the report card: Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation Rate, Improving At-Risk K-3 Readers, and Prepared for Success.
However, there is enough data in three areas for the district’s performance to be part of its Report Card dashboard. Those areas are Graduation Rate, Improving At-Risk K-3 Readers, and Prepared for Success.
