State Report Card Update
Today the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) released the state report card for Perrysburg Schools. Once again Perrysburg Schools showed strong performance. The school district's performance index, which measures how well students performed on state tests overall, increased for the third consecutive year, as did many of the other indicators.
Perrysburg Schools experienced a score reduction in Gap Closing as a result of our four-year graduation rate for students with disabilities, which caused Perrysburg Schools to miss earning its second overall “A” grade by 7/1000ths of a point. In previous years this score was a combined calculation of the five-year graduation rate and the four-year graduation rate; this year it only reflects the four-year graduation rate. In addition, half of our non-graduates had their graduation intentionally deferred because a team of educators and their parents identified this as the best option for these students. The State of Ohio permits schools to educate students on Individual Education Plans (IEPs) through the age of 22.
“We are very pleased with our school district’s performance and continued improvement as seen in the increase in our overall Performance Index Score,” stated Mr. Thomas L. Hosler, Superintendent of Perrysburg Schools. “If given the choice between doing what is right for students on IEPs or taking a higher letter grade, we will do what is best for students every single time.”
