Ohio is changing the way it measures and rates the performance of schools and districts. The 2012-2013 school and district report cards will grade schools and districts on a mix of new and previously used items with an A-F letter-grade system.
Previous school and district report cards mostly were based on how well students performed on state achievement tests. Achievement tests will still be a major part of school and district grades, but the new report card will view them in a different way. In addition, the report cards for 2012-2013 and beyond will use new measurements to determine if students are prepared for success beyond high school.
