Things to consider: Blue Ash
Per the Ohio Department of Education website, Ohio School Report Cards give each community a clear picture of the progress of the district and schools in raising achievement and preparing students for the future. Ohio School Report Cards data shows educators, school administrators and families where their schools are succeeding as well as areas where they need to improve. Schools and districts report information for the Ohio School Report Cards on specific marks of performance - called measures- within six broad components - Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation Rate, K-3 Literacy and Prepared for Success. The Department gives letter grades on each of the six components and most of the individual measures. For the purposes of this summary, the letter grade for "Achievement" is shown. You are encouraged to review the Ohio School Report Cards in detail (see Ohio Department of Education website). The "Achievement" grade for the Sycamore City Schools reported on the 2016- 2017 Report Card was a "B".
