Ohio plans to release more school report-card data

Associated Press • Oct 10, 2012 at 5:58 PM

The Ohio Board of Education voted Tuesday to release more data in an online spreadsheet. The board said it expects to make the information public by Oct. 17.

A wide investigation by the state auditor into the reporting of student-attendance data by schools has delayed the release of full report cards. That usually happens in August.

Some school districts are suspected of improperly removing low-performing students from attendance rolls to boost school performance rankings and employee bonuses.

So far, only a limited amount of data has been released in spreadsheet form. The state won't finalize the report cards until the investigation is complete.
