West Liberty-Salem Local School District was the only district that fell in their overall grade. The district fell from a “B” to a ”C.”

Urbana City School District’s grade was a “D”, which what it earned last year.

Each school and district in the state has received a report card with an A-F grade.

More than half of each school’s overall grade depends on how students perform on state tests each spring. Six factors are nearly evenly weighted- achievement, progress and “gap closing” on state tests, plus graduation rate, improving K-3 reading and a “prepared for success” measure based on high school accomplishments.
