Local school districts across the Chagrin Valley and Geauga County are improving and sustaining overall student achievement, according to the annual Ohio Department of Education district report cards, released Sept. 13.
For the fourth year in a row, Solon earned the top achievement score in the state, with a Performance Index of 111.8 out of a possible 120. The Performance Index measures test results of every student in a district.
Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools, Kenston Local Schools, Solon City Schools and West Geauga Local Schools all received overall A’s, while Chardon Local Schools and Orange City Schools received B’s. Berkshire Local Schools, Cardinal Local Schools and Newbury Local Schools all received overall C’s.
“This year’s report cards show improvement in districts in every corner of the state, at all levels of wealth, large and small, urban, rural and everything in between,” Ohio Department of Education Superintendent Paolo DeMaria said.
An addition to this year’s report cards, districts received an overall letter grade combining the six components including Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Improving At-Risk Kindergarten through Third-Grade Readers, Graduation Rate and Prepared for Success. Districts throughout the Chagrin Valley and Geauga County were part of the more than 75 percent of districts statewide that received overall grades of C or higher.
