2013-2014 State Report Card Results
The Ohio Department of Education released state report card data on Friday, September 12, for the 2013-2014 school year. Delaware City Schools continues to improve on overall academic performance and value added measures. According to Superintendent Paul Craft, “We are pleased with how we did on many of the measures, but we continue to work hard every day to ensure all students are successful.”
Again this year, the school district and individual schools received a series of letter grades (A-F) rather than the one overall designation. Throughout the district there are many areas where Delaware City Schools and the individual schools are doing really well. Over the past five years, we have improved on achievement, graduation rate and overall progress, meaning our students are, on average, making more than a year’s worth of growth each school year. Craft said, “Value added is a measure I watch closely. If we continue to exceed expected growth on a yearly basis, our overall performance will continue to improve as well.”
The report card also points out areas where we can improve. District leaders, principals and teachers are spending a considerable amount of time analyzing these report cards to understand where resources are needed as we continue to prepare our students for success.
