Oakwood in state’s top 6 on school report card measure

Oakwood City Schools was the only local district — and one of six statewide — to earn an "A" for overall test performance on the 2014-15 state report cards released Thursday.

Oakwood got that “A” in Performance Index, which adds credit for very high scores and penalizes very low scores.

Oakwood Superintendent Kyle Ramey this week credited his district’s “master teachers, who work their tails off” for the district’s continued success.

Behind Oakwood, there were 10 local districts that earned B’s in Performance Index, while posting A’s in two other high-profile categories — value-added growth, and testing indicators met.

Those districts were Beavercreek, Brookville, Centerville, Covington, Kettering, Lebanon, Miami East, Milton-Union, Springboro and Yellow Springs.

Value-added scores aim to show whether elementary school students made at least one year of academic growth in a year's time in reading and math. ODE officials said Wednesday that many districts still have appeals pending on that data.

On the other end of the scale, Dayton, Northridge and West Carrollton schools struggled, according to the state report card. Each of those districts received F’s in both value-added growth and testing indicators met, while getting a “D” in Performance Index.

Even though state officials said performance index scores were down slightly statewide, there were no districts in Ohio that received an “F” in that measure.
