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.

Hotline Collects Ohio Attendance Data Reports

The Ohio state auditor has established a hotline for Columbus school employees to report incidences of attendance data being altered to boost state report card numbers.

State Auditor Dave Yost said the hotline will allow more secure reporting of information without fear of reprisal.

Columbus is one of three Ohio school districts targeted by state investigations into enrollment and attendance practices. The others are the Lockland School District in the Cincinnati area and Toledo Public Schools.
