Ohio Ready to Release School Report Cards

The Ohio Department of Education says it's ready to release school districts' long-awaited report cards now that a review of attendance data practices has been released.

The report cards for the 2011-2012 school year should have been published last summer but were delayed because of a state investigation into districts' enrollment policies.

Education Department spokesman John Charlton said Monday the report cards and other school rankings will be released by month's end.
