Many Lorain County school districts saw a slight increase in their report card scores, which the Ohio Department of Education released Thursday.
According to the scores, most districts saw a bump in the “gap closing” component, which measures how well schools are meeting the performance of the “most vulnerable” students and their English language abilities.
Wellington and Lorain were the only two districts whose score remained the same, a D and F, respectively.
The four-year graduation rate scores remained consistent for many districts with Amherst, Clearview, North Ridgeville and Oberlin seeing increases from Bs to As and Wellington seeing an increases from C to B.
The Lorain school district, which is currently under a state takeover plan because of poor performance on previous state report cards, needed to get a C grade in both the value-added and performance index components in order to regain local control.
In the first year or a five year plan, the district received an F in value-added, which measures expected growth, and a D in performance index, which measures the achievement of every student in the district, keeping the scores the same from the previous year.
