Canal Winchester schools earned an overall grade of D on the latest state report card, released Sept. 13 by the Ohio Department of Education.

The rankings were based on data from the 2017-18 school year.

The district’s lowest grade was an F in progress, which measures how much students learn over a specific time period.

It earned D’s in three categories: achievement, gap-closing and prepared for success.

The achievement component considers how students perform on state tests. Gap-closing measures how well students from different races, ethnicities, economic backgrounds and disabilities perform on state tests.

Prepared for success examines how well students are prepared for college, technical training or to enter the workforce after they graduate from high school.

Canal Winchester schools earned an A for its graduation rate and a C in K-3 literacy, which looks at how well a district does in getting struggling readers up to a proficient level by the time they reach third grade.

District officials were not immediately available for comment.
