Ohio District and School Report Cards
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.
The state’s accountability system and Ohio School Report Cards for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years will look different because of short-term changes in Ohio law and the accountability waivers approved by the U.S. Department of Education. Therefore, updated spreadsheets reporting the letter grades or ratings will not be available for the 2019-2020 or 2020-2021 school years.
To see report cards for individual schools within Cincinnati Public Schools, visit the Ohio Department of Education's website.
