2016 Ohio Report Cards

The Ohio Department of Education has released the 2016 school report cards, reflecting academic performance for the 2015-2016 school year.  When you access LaBrae's district report card, or the report card of one of our buildings, you will notice that we receive grades in categories labeled Student Achievement, Student Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation Rate, K-3 Literacy, and College/Career Readiness, which is identified with the label "Prepared for Success".  

Over the course of the last three years, Ohio schools have undergone many changes to the standards and expectations associated with the State report cards.  For example, the 2015-2016 school year was the third consecutive year of a different test being administered by Ohio schools.  Not only have there been changes to testing, there have been changes to the learning standards and accountability measures, such as an increase in the percentage of students who must be proficient for a district, or school building, to have met an indicator in the tested subject.

Overall grades will not be placed on the report cards until 2018 as Ohio is giving districts time to adjust to the multitude of changes before assigning such grades.  LaBrae's 2016 report card has many successes, and our performance continues to rank high in comparison to other Trumbull County schools.  While LaBrae is proud of the many positives on the report card, it also acknowledges those categories on the report card that represent opportunities for improvement.  Our challenge remains maintaining areas of academic excellence while diligently addressing those improvement opportunities.  Furthermore, while LaBrae is proud of its success on Ohio's report card, the report card is not our only measure of success.  There are numerous examples of excellence and commitment to students throughout our District that when coupled with our achievement, serve as evidence of the good being done for our students and families.  All of our successes are a testament to the hard work of our students and staff, and are achieved with the help of a strong and supportive community. Despite this era of transition, this is a report card of which the LaBrae community can be proud.  Should you have questions regarding LaBrae's report card(s), please contact the Office of the Superintendent at 330.898.1393.

Additionally, LaBrae Local Schools has also provided PDF attachments below comparing all 20 public schools in Trumbull County.  Despite the State's lack of a letter grade assignment, the District simply calculated all grades assigned, averaged the letter grades on the grade scale provided, and arrived at an overall G.P.A. and letter grade for Trumbull County Schools.  Please note, that this methodology is not scientific and does not take into account the variables that impact achievement in each Trumbull County district/community, and is merely provided to our community for the sake of comparison. 

(Note: The report card links below will direct you to the Ohio Department of Education's website and provide interactivity, allowing the viewer access to greater detail in each component accessible through embedded hyperlinks.)
