Dublin City Schools received an overall grade of B on its school district report card, created annually for all school districts by the Ohio Board of Education.

The report cards, which were released by the state Sept. 12, are used to rate districts on performance during the 2018-19 school year.

The district received a C in achievement, which assesses performance on state tests; an A in progress, which measures growth based on past performance; an A in gap closing, which gauges how well the needs of certain groups of students are being met; an A in graduation rate; a C for improving at-risk K-3 readers; and a B in prepared for success.

As a tax funded organization and one which has high expectations of its students, Dublin City Schools is always accepting of accountability, said Superintendent Todd Hoadley.

At the same time, the scores are nothing more than a snapshot of students on a particular day, he said.

The report card, Hoadley said, is a “sliver” of student performance.

He said the district measures student success in many ways that aren’t included in the report card, such as in the areas of technology, arts, foreign language and athletics.

“We always want to work to improve,” he said.
