The state has released the rest of the state report card information, and the news is good for both Copley-Fairlawn and Revere schools.
While the data is still preliminary, as of now, the Revere district has again achieved the highest possible state report card rating for the 13th year in a row: “Excellent with Distinction.”
Copley-Fairlawn earned the same rating, improved from last year's "Excellent."
School and district report cards are usually released at the beginning of the school year, but that timeline has been pushed back while the state auditor investigates whether some districts manipulated attendance data. Some preliminary data—without the ratings—was released in late September. The final results and the PDFs of the report cards won’t be published until the state auditor’s investigation is done, according to the Ohio Department of Education’s website.
Copley-Fairlawn schools met all 26 of the report card indicators — measures like how many students scored proficient on a certain state test or attendance rate — and have a preliminary performance index of 104.1 out of 120. The performance index measures how well students performed on state tests overall. While the attendance rate and performance index had not been previously released, the school board got a look at the results in September.
Revere schools also met all 26 indicators and has a performance index of 106.7.
All but one of Revere’s schools has been rated as “Excellent” for the 2011-2012 school year. Bath Elementary is the exception: It has been rated as “Excellent with Distinction.”
In Copley-Fairlawn, Fort Island Primary and Copley-Fairlawn Middle School were rated "Excellent with Distinction." Copley-Fairlawn High School and Arrowhead Primary are "Excellent" and Herberich Primary is "Effective."
