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.
State Auditor David Yost concluded a months-long review of school data on Monday with the finding that nine districts altered enrollment data.
Yost says he's been talking to federal prosecutors about his findings.
