Clark, Champaign school report card data released

The Ohio Department of Education has released the 2014-15 Ohio State Report Card data that shows how well local students did on last year’s state exams, including the first and only administration of the PARCC math and English tests.

Clark-Shawnee was the area’s best performing school, earning an A for its students test performance, a B for its performance index, which adds credit for very high scores and penalizes very low scores, and an A for value-added, which measures how much progress students made in one year.

Springfield City School District and Graham Local School District both got Fs for their test performance, Ds for performance index and Fs for value-added.

Almost every district’s performance index fell this year on the harder tests, ODE Director of Accountability Chris Woolard said.

Today’s release is the second and final piece of the 2014-15 state report card and includes results from state tests administered in spring 2015.

The data is coming five months late because of delays in scoring the new tests and deciding grade cutoffs. Students, districts and teachers will have “safe harbor” from most consequences of the tests, and schools won’t be issued an overall grade.

We’ll have updates on specific schools’ performance as more detailed data is released throughout the day.
