The release of Ohio’s school report cards will continue to be delayed while the state auditor investigates whether some districts manipulated attendance data.
The state Board of Education on Tuesday decided to release some of the information to the public around the end of September, Ohio Department of Education Associate Director of Communications John Charlton said in an email. The data will not include attendance rates, performance index or overall ratings, and the board has not set a date to release the full report cards at this time.
That means that Copley-Fairlawn and Revere parents won’t know if their local school is still rated as “Excellent,” “Effective” or the like until much later in the school year. The ratings are usually released at the end of August. Last year, Copley-Fairlawn earned an "Excellent" rating and Revere earned "Excellent with Distinction."
According to StateImpact Ohio, the auditor’s investigation could continue into 2013. The Columbus Dispatch has more on the scandal and the board members’ reasoning behind the limited data release.
