Traditional state report cards for local school districts have been delayed, but the Ohio Department of Education today released some preliminary data to give the public an idea of how their local school district performed last year.
As expected, Solon Schools continue to excel.
Here’s a look at how Solon schools performed:
- 96.7 percent of students graduated within four years.
- The district met adequate yearly progress.
- The district has a value-added score of “above,” which means that, overall, students in grades 3 to 8 learn more than expected in a year.
Elementary and Middle School Scores (out of 100)Grade/Subject Score 3rd Grade Reading 94.6 3rd Grade Math 93 4th Grade Reading 98 4th Grade Math 97.7 5th Grade Reading 93.7 5th Grade Math 95.1 5th Grade Science 94.2 6th Grade Reading 99.5 6th Grade Math 98.3 7th Grade Reading 94.7 7th Grade Math 95.2 8th Grade Reading 98.4 8th Grade Math 97.5 8th Grade Science 95.2

Now, some caveats:
The information does not include an overall rating, such as “excellent” or “effective,” that the public is used to seeing. The state is investigating whether some districts manipulated attendance data and is holding off on releasing final report cards until that investigation is complete.
The available information includes the percentage of students who scored proficient or higher on state tests and the graduation rates for the 2011-2012 school year. It also includes the value-added measure—which tracks whether students make a year’s worth of growth in grades 3 to 8 for reading and math—and adequate yearly progress, which measures achievement for students by subgroup.
On its website, the department stresses that this information is preliminary and could change.
