LaBrae Local Schools' 2014 Ohio Report Card One of the Best in Trumbull County

The Ohio Department of Education has released the 2014 school report cards, reflecting academic performance for the 2013-2014 school year.  When you access LaBrae's district report card, or the report card of one of our buildings, you will notice that we receive grades in categories labeled Student Achievement, Student Progress, Gap Closing and Graduation Rate.  In the coming years, K-3 literacy will be a graded component as well as Student College/Career Readiness.This year's report card demonstrates LaBrae's continued growth and excellence as an institution of learning.  

Overall grades will not be placed on the report cards until 2016 as Ohio transitions to new learning standards and higher levels of accountability.   For example, one change for this report card is the requirement for districts to get 80% of their students proficient in a testing category in grades 3-8, and grade 10, in order to meet the indicators in Student Achievement.  This is an increase of 5% points from the 75% proficiency rate required in previous years.  The State's relaxing of overall grades for districts and individual school buildings is designed to prevent schools from being graded negatively as districts adjust to the implementation of new standards and accountability measures. 

In short, LaBrae's 2014 report card has many successes.  When one examines the details, and considers the increased proficiency requirement, one will find that this is the strongest report card LaBrae has ever had in the 21 year era of accountability.  Furthermore, while LaBrae is proud of its success on Ohio's report card, our report card is not our only measure of success.  There are numerous examples of excellence and commitment to students throughout our District that when coupled with our excellent achievement, serve as evidence of the good we are doing for our students and families.  All of our successes are a testament to the hard work of our students and staff, and are achieved with the help of a strong and supportive community.  This is a report card of which the LaBrae community can be proud.

Additionally, LaBrae Local Schools has also provided PDF attachments below comparing all 20 public schools in Trumbull County.  Despite the State's lack of a letter grade assignment, the District simply calculated all grades assigned, averaged the letter grades on the grade scale provided, and arrived at an overall G.P.A. and letter grade for Trumbull County Schools.  Please note, that this methodology is not scientific and does not take into account the variables that impact achievement in each Trumbull County district/community, and is merely provided to our community for the sake of comparison. 

(Note: These report cards link to ODE's website and provide interactivity, allowing the viewer access to greater detail in each component accessible through embedded hyperlinks.)
