According to preliminary results, the Bexley City School District has earned top honors on the Ohio Department of Education's annual report card for 2010-11.

Bexley City Schools met all of the state indicators for the school year. All of the district's five schools received an "Excellent" rating and a performance indicator greater than 100.

Final results on the ODE report card are expected to be released in the Fall.

The Performance Index is based on the average of all students' test scores in the district; if every student scored at the advanced level, the Performance Index would be 120.

The overall district state indicator was 105.8, higher than the past two years, according to Anne Hyland, the district's director of curriculum and instruction.

"Some 92 percent of Bexley students are scoring at proficient or better on these state assessments," Hyland said. Last year, 90.1 percent of students were at this level.

Even more impressive, 67.2 percent of the district's students scored at the two highest achievement levels - accelerated and advanced, compared to 62.9 percent who scored at those levels last year.

The results are expected to help Bexley Schools maintain elite status. The district should achieve an "Excellent with Distinction" rating for the 11th year in a row.

Hyland said staff members "make this a great place for students to be engaged in enticing and thought-provoking learning activities each day."
