The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) annually issues report cards for each Ohio school district and each Ohio school. The report cards look back on a school year and provide information on such areas as students’ performance on statewide tests, graduation rates and early literacy rates.
ODE released CPS' 2017-18 Ohio Report Card on Sept. 13, 2018.

- Of six areas evaluated, CPS improved in five areas and maintained its rating in one. Thirty-three CPS schools gained points under the State’s Performance Index.
