As of the 2013-2014 school year, the Ohio Department of Education is replacing the previous school state rating system. Beginning in Aug., 2013, schools across Ohio will begin to receive a ‘Local Report Card,’ focused on letter grade ratings for schools and districts based on a variety of different components. Eventually, this will cover 18 items in six categories. Currently, ratings are available for six of these items. You can view the district’s results
for the 2012-2013 school year online. The online report also explains each category and the detail behind the calculations.
(Please note - ODE has not yet made this report accessible on a mobile device. Accessing the site via a PC yields the best results.)
As a district we are pleased with our overall results, particularly in the value-added area. This shows our students are personally growing in their education, which is very important to us. Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools will continue to provide the same high-quality education we always have, the only difference is the evaluation measure has changed.
This report card initiative will roll-out completely by Aug., 2015. Until that time, certain portions and ratings will be available but an overall letter grade will not. We do not know yet what our overall grade will be in two years, but as always our teachers and support staff are working to continuously improve their teaching and your child’s learning. Gahanna-Jefferson is focused on student growth.
If you have any questions regarding your school’s curriculum or your child’s education performance, please contact your school principal.
