Urban Districts' Report Cards Dominated By Low Grades

Ohio's major urban districts saw few areas of improvement in their report cards compared to a year ago, and several saw declines in areas where the state increased expectations.

The Department of Education upped the standard this year by requiring schools to have 80% of their students earn scores of "proficient" in a tested subject for the district to have "met" the goal. In the past the rate has been 75% for the 24 tested areas of the Ohio Achievement Assessment and the Ohio Graduation Test.
