The Ohio Department of Education released its new state report cards Aug. 22. Solon as a district met all 24 indicators in the report and was given an "A" in student achievement.
Before this year the scale used labels to rate the district such as "Excellent With Distinction," the highest overall rating.
While there is no encompassing grade for a district until 2015, according to the state, the new report card is designed to offer a clearer picture of schools’ strengths and weaknesses for all types of students.
Here are some of the areas the district was graded:
- Student achievement Results (A)
- Value-added for general population (A)
- Value-added for gifted students (C)
- Value-added for lowest 20 percent (A)
- Value-added for students with disabilities (B)

“We are pleased to see that Solon’s student achievement again ranked within the top 5 in the state of Ohio,” Superintendent Joe Regano said. “Our students and staff continue to work hard in classrooms every day and these results are reflective of their efforts. We always have more work to do, however, and as our staff does every year when we receive Ohio Report Card results, we take the individual student data and use it to inform instruction for the new school year.”
