Report Card 2015-2016

The recent state report card from the Ohio Department of Education reflects that our state is raising the bar for all students. Our students were judged against new, higher standards. While we agree with raising the bar, this year’s data comes from the third different state test in as many years. The lower grades in some areas may be a concern to parents and residents as Springboro has an established tradition of high state ratings. Even with the lower grades on this year’s report card, Springboro Community City Schools is among the 20 percent of public districts with the highest academic performance index scores in the state. Our district is one of only three districts in a five county area to receive no district grade below a “C.”

First, we want to encourage our students and staff on a job well done. We know our work in education does not end with a test or a report card, and now we are reviewing our grades and the data behind them in order to direct resources where they are most needed for student growth.

The state report card informs us in six broad categories: K-3 Literacy, Progress, Achievement, Gap Closing, Graduation Rates, and Prepared for Success. The Ohio Department of Education has made a a brief overview of the 2016 Ohio School Report Cards available online.

There are additional accountability measures that define a high-quality education in ways that are not captured on the state report card--academic programs offered, the arts, student leadership and activities, financial responsibility and operations, parent and community involvement, and student services.
