YOUR DISTRICT: See multiple letter grades for local schools
Only 14 of Ohio’s 608 school districts got overall grades of “F” — less than three percent of the state.
Dayton Public Schools was the only local district to receive an “F.” That means DPS is now one year from potential state takeover. That takeover would occur if the district earns another overall “F” on the state report card a year from now, marking its third straight year of hitting certain low performance standards.
Trotwood schools were on the verge of immediate state takeover if they had received an “F” on Thursday. But the district earned a “D,” thanks to big improvement in “gap closing,” where they earned a “B.”
Like Trotwood, Warrensville Heights schools near Cleveland earned an overall “D” to avoid state takeover. East Cleveland, which got an “F,” is the only school district in Ohio that faces takeover because of Thursday’s report card. They will join Youngstown and Lorain, who have been in takeover status for years.
