Ohio has adopted revised accountability standards for schools going into the 2013-2014 school year. Over the last year, State officials have designed a school report card that grades schools in many categories that are similar to the previous report card. One of the biggest changes has been in A-F letter grades being assigned to school districts and school buildings. Previously, schools received designations, i.e. Excellent with Distinction, Excellent, Effective etc.. However, Ohio felt that it would be easier for the public to comprehend letter grades, thus the move to an A-F grading system. The public should be aware that overall grades will not be placed on the report cards until 2015. This was done to give school districts time to transition to the higher accountability standards. 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.
In short, LaBrae's 2013 report card has many successes. When one examines the details, one will find that this is the strongest report card LaBrae has ever had in the 20 year era of accountability. 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.
