A searchable list of the 2022 report card results scored out of five stars is provided at the end of this story.

CINCINNATI (Enquirer) - School report cards released Thursday show school districts in Ohio, on average, fell short of student growth expectations by a slim margin but met state standards in graduation rates. Overall ratings were not provided this school year, and have not been reported since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Starting this year, schools will receive star ratings on five components: achievement, progress, gap closing, graduation and early literacy. Another component analyzing college, career, workforce and military readiness will be scored on future report cards, according to the state, beginning with the 2024-25 school year at the earliest.

In a searchable database below, you will find the state’s progress and graduation ratings for each district. There are 607 districts in Ohio included in the state’s ratings.

Districts are rated on:

  • Achievement: student performance on state tests and whether they met established state thresholds, for grades 3-12.
  • Progress: the growth of all students by comparing last year’s state test scores to their performance on previous state tests.
  • Gap closing: looks at several data points to assess whether student subgroups based on race, ability and economic status are meeting state standards.
  • Graduation: the four-year and five-year adjusted cohort graduation rates.
  • Early literacy: information from third grade reading tests, fourth grade promotions and literacy improvement from kindergarten to third grade.

A more detailed explanation of what goes into the state’s ratings for each component can be found online at the Ohio Department of Education’s Guide to 2022 Ohio School Report Cards.
