District Publishes 2015-16 Quality Profile
On September 15, school districts throughout Ohio are releasing a comprehensive, community-oriented companion to the State’s School District Report Card. Called a “Quality Profile”, the report includes additional accountability measures that better define a high quality education and are not included in the State’s report.

The Quality Profile examines the elements, including results on standardized testing measures, of a quality public education, as defined by residents of the community. Its content is divided into six categories: academics, arts, student leadership and activities, fiscal stewardship, parent and community involvement, and student services.
“The Quality Profile highlights valuable components of our district, in addition to our Local Report Card developed by the Ohio Department of Education,” said Superintendent Ben Hegedish. “We are fortunate to have an outstanding school district with exceptional students, staff, and parents. We thank the community for their commitment to the education of our children.”
Over the last several years, participating districts have been surveying residents to determine factors they value in their child’s education that are not measured on the state report card. The result is an expanded report that describes, in detail, the programs and values of their school system.
The Quality Profile is supported by the Alliance for High Quality Education, an education consortium that works to improve educational opportunities for students and to speak for member districts on matters of educational policy and funding.
