Ohio School, District Ratings Nearing Release

Officials have rescheduled the release of Ohio school and district ratings that have been delayed amid a statewide review of student-attendance data.

The Ohio Department of Education now tentatively plans to release the report cards Wednesday. Results are still considered preliminary as Ohio Auditor Dave Yost investigates enrollment and attendance irregularities around the state.

The Ohio Board of Education voted to release the eagerly-awaited information, in part because Election Day is approaching and many districts are pursuing levy and bond issues.

The reports are normally published in August.

A department spokesman said the information will not be presented with the charts, graphs and other visual elements that districts and families have come to expect. Results will be listed in a simple spreadsheet for now.
