See how closely Ohio school report card grades trend with income

CLEVELAND, Ohio - The Ohio school report cards released earlier this month were nearly perfect in following an established trend - higher income districts on average scored better than those with lower household incomes.

This was the case for five of the six overall categories in which the Ohio Department of Education issued grades, a cleveland.com analysis found. Some of these areas focused on student performance; others on how well schools did in helping individual students improve.

The incomes were typically higher for the districts getting As, and the incomes were typically the lowest for those getting Fs. Incomes for Bs, Cs and Ds correspondingly declined.

But exceptions existed for individual districts. Cuyahoga Falls, Lakewood and Brooklyn, for instance, ranked significantly higher on their report cards than where they rank for median incomes.

Below is the breakdown by the grade given by the state for each report card category. Incomes were calculated by cleveland.com using the median household income for each district.

  • The achievement component of the report card represents whether student performance on state tests met established thresholds and how well students performed on tests overall.

Graduation rate

Some 329 districts received As, 164 Bs, 68 Cs, 26 Ds and 20 Fs.

Progress

  • The Progress component looks closely at the growth that all students are making based on their past performances.

Some 114 districts received As, 210 Bs, 76 Cs, 151 Ds and 57 Fs.

Gap Closing

  • The Gap Closing component shows how well schools are meeting the performance expectations for our most vulnerable populations of students in English language arts, math and graduation.

Two districts received As, 17 Bs, 28 Cs, 35 Ds and 526 Fs.

K-3 literacy

  • The K-3 literacy component looks at how successful the school is at getting struggling readers on track to proficiency in third grade and beyond.

Four districts received As, 18 Bs, 88 Cs, 192 Ds and 240 Fs.

Prepared for Success

  • Whether training in a technical field or preparing for work or college, the Prepared for Success component looks at how well prepared Ohio's students are for all future opportunities. Considerations include: college entrance exam scores, an honors diploma, an industry-recognized credential or group of credentials, advanced placement tests scores, international Baccalaureate tests scores and College Credit Plus credits.

Some 13 districts received As, 34 Bs, 271 Cs, 261 Ds and 28 Fs.

Here are the schools in the lower half of the state for median income which ranked among the highest on the report cards. Cleveland.com calculated the report card rankings using an average of all component scores. The state did not release such a ranking.

  • Maplewood (Trumbull County), 371st for income and 17th for report card among 608 Ohio districts.
  • Columbiana (Columbiana County) 358th for income and 27th for report card.
