Cincinnati School District Shows Improvement

11/07/11

According to a Columbus-based nonprofit consulting company, Battelle for Kids and SOAR, students in Cincinnati Public Schools are rated at the top for student achievement on Ohio’s state standardized test. The Battelle report ranked Ohio school districts based on students’ academic achievement in the 2009-10 and 2010-11 academic years. The report gathered data from the state’s department of education. Cincinnati’s implementation of its community learning centers has been a major reason for their improvement and success.
 
The department measured "Value-Added" data. "Value-Added" is essentially a measure of academic growth per year. Lakota exceeded expectations for academic growth while Cincinnati Public Schools with 33,000 students ranked 13th for academic growth. Both Cincinnati and Lakota received Excellent with Distinction on the state report cards.
 
The Battelle study is unique and significant because it goes beyond student achievement, it measures growth. The study highlights schools that are going above and beyond to challenge its students academically.
