DEFIANCE, OH (Toledo News Now) - The state of Ohio gave Defiance City Schools a grade of “effective” on the 2012-2013 state report card. Beginning in the 2013-2014 school year, the state will begin to assign letter grades to assess district performance.
The Department of Education released “simulated” grades based on the new system, using 2012-2013 data this week. The simulated grade cards are intended to give districts a preview of how their performance will be measured next year.
The new system assigns letter grades in 9 categories: Performance Indicators, Performance Index, 4-Year Graduation Rate, 5-Year Graduation Rate, Value-Added: All Students, Value-Added: Gifted Students, Value-Added: Lowest 20% in Achievement, Value-Added: Students with Disabilities and Annual Measurable Objectives. The “Value Added” categories measure student progress from one school year to the next for specific groups of students.

- Performance Indicators - B
