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 charts show overall trends. Some schools, however, deviated from the trend.
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.
In Greater Cleveland, schools in the lower half for income but ranking higher for report cards, overall, included:
