The Ohio Department of Education has released its school report cards.

The department says report cards are designed to give parents, communities, educators, and policymakers information about the performance of districts and schools — to celebrate achievement and success and identify areas for improvement.

The Ohio General Assembly amended Ohio’s accountability law in the summer of 2021. Schools and districts now receive star ratings for five components. The report cards for the 2021-2022 school year will not include an overall rating, but one will be added when the 2023 report cards are released in the fall of that year.

The five components are: Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation, and Early Literacy.

In the Ohio Valley, these are how the High Schools were graded for the 2021,2022 school year:
