Ohio Releases New A-F Report Cards To Schools
Ohio's top public schools official says no district received all As on Ohio's new A-F report cards, and none received all Fs.
Superintendent Richard Ross told reporters ahead of Thursday's release of the first round of new scores that districts instead fell at all points on the scale.
The 2013 report cards rate schools and buildings in the first nine of 18 new performance criteria. Districts and buildings won't receive overall letter grades until 2015.
The Ohio Department of Education released the data on an interactive state website. Aggregate state results weren't immediately available.
The revamped system replaces the six-tier assessment system that featured such labels as "Excellent" and "Continuous Improvement."
