School Report Cards

The 2020 Ohio School Report Cards which serve as the basis for the state’s accountability system for schools and districts, will not feature letter grades.

The change follows the passage of a coronavirus response measure (HB 197) prohibiting ODE from issuing report card grades for the 2019-20 school year and barring related sanctions.

year. However, some measures are based on lagged (prior year) data and will be available as noted.
