Findlay City Schools has received a B on a the second part of the Ohio School District Report Cards for the 2014-15 school year. The Courier reports that Findlay City Schools met 27 of 32 standards, receiving a letter grade of B for the school year. Arlington and Riverdale Schools also got a B. Cory-Rawson schools got a D, McComb was given a C, and Liberty-Benton, Van Buren and Vanlue got As.
These seven measures look at student achievement on state tests, reduction of achievement and graduation gaps affecting minorities and student progress, according to a release from ODE.
Despite the grades many local school administrators are frustrated. The Courier further reports that frustration comes from the lateness of the grades being received, and testing set to happen again next month. Schools got ratings on three of 10 measures in January, almost four months late, and got the remaining seven on Thursday.
The state used letter grades but didn’t give schools overall ratings. Instead, it rated them on measures including how many students passed the state test, how well students did on the test, graduation rates, literacy and more.
