Thu. 1:42pm: Technical problems delay release of report cards

A technical problem with the Ohio Department of Education website has delayed the release of the 2012-2013 school report cards. .

Using its new format, ODE attempted to release information this morning.

As of 1:30 p.m. today, an ODE representative said the matter is being addressed. However, it is not clear when the information will be available.

Briefly early this afternoon the Tribune Chronicle was able to Log onto the ODE site and obtain information about Warren City Schools before the system went down again.

According to that information, Warren earned in the achievement measure, a D for Performance Index and an F for indicators met. Achievement combines two results for students who took the states tests. Performance Index indicates how many students passed the state test. Indicators met represents how well students did on the state test.

For Gap Closing, which shows how well students are doing in the district in reading, math and graduation, Warren received an F.

Schools and districts are no longer receiving labels like “Excellent” or “Continuous Improvement.” Instead, the state has moved to an A-F letter-grades system. The new report card grades schools on several measures. The number of measures will increase gradually over the next two years reaching nine by August 2015.

This is a developing story, check back throughout the day for updates as they come in.
