After achieving the highest reported growth of academic improvement in the region in 2021-22, the Port Clinton City School District has announced the district has achieved a 4.5 out of a 5-star rating from the Ohio Department of Education (ODE).
“Last year we were the district in the area with the most growth,” said Superintendent of Schools Patrick Adkins. “Now it’s great to see we are one of the highest performing in the area. Our teachers, administrators and students have worked extremely hard in this area and it’s great to see their hard work paying off.”
“Our recent success is 100% a collaborative effort of our incredible students, and excellent teachers,” said Kelly Croy, Director of Innovation and Instruction. “Our overall academic success being recognized by the state is indeed rewarding, but we strive each day to make a positive impact in the lives of every individual student and their family.”
According to ODE in a media release, “schools and districts will receive overall ratings of 1-5 stars in half-star increments. The report cards will include five rated components and various report-only data. The five components will receive ratings from one to five stars.
Report cards show the progress of districts and schools in raising achievement and preparing students for the future. The data can be used to guide school improvement and respond to student learning needs.
However, Ohio School Report Cards are not the only measure of the success or accomplishments of a school or district. Talking with parents, neighbors, students and graduates, browsing school and district websites or visiting schools and meeting educators can provide a more complete picture of students’ educational experiences.”
