Look for the ratings for individual schools in Copley-Fairlawn, Revere or across the state in our searchable database.
The Ohio Department of Education released preliminary report card data for schools across the state on Wednesday. The final results won’t be released until the state finishes its investigation into some districts' attendance data. Search through our database above to find information on any traditional public school in the state. You’ll find the school’s preliminary state report card rating —all but one of schools were ranked “Excellent” or above for the 2011-2012 school year— and enrollment data, attendance rates and graduation rates for high schools.

Compare local districts with our searchable database.
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…

There are no overall ratings yet, but Copley-Fairlawn and Revere parents, teachers and community members can take a look at how the district did on some of the important indicators like graduation rate and adequate yearly progress.
Editor's Note: This story was update at 8:06 a.m. on Sept. 27. Traditional state report cards for local school districts have been delayed, but the Ohio Department of Education today released some preliminary data to give the public an idea of how their local school district performed last year. The information does not include an overall rating, such as “excellent” or “effective,” that the public is used to seeing. The state is investigating whether some districts manipulated attendance data and is holding off on releasing final report cards until that investigation is complete. The available information includes the percentage of students who scored proficient or higher on state tests and the graduation rates for the 2011-2012 school …

Search our interactive campaign contribution database to see which of your neighbors contributed to a presidential candidate.
*Editor's note: This database was updated on Oct. 19, 2012. The numbers listed in the article below have changed. Fifteen people in Fairlawn-Bath have donated to Obama and six have donated to Romney.

A total of 14 Fairlawn and Bath residents have given more than $1,000 to presidential candidates in this election cycle — and nine of those residents have given 29 contributions to Barack Obama.

As the first day of school gets closer, see how your local schools performed on last year’s state report card using our interactive search form.
For students entering middle school, the first day is more than new books and class assignments. It’s a time of physical, social and academic transition. So what are parents supposed to do to help students navigate this tumultuous time? Keep communicating and encourage students to get involved, local principals suggest. A 2011 study from the Program on Education Policy and Governance at Harvard University found that students in Florida experienced a significant drop in math and reading achievement when they entered middle school. The study’s authors address the study in an article for EducationNext. The database above includes all public middle schools for the Patch communities in Ohio. You can search for your local school to see how it …
