TCTC makes the grade on Ohio's career and technical center report card

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Trumbull Career and Technical Center received straight A's on the state's simulated report cards for career and technical centers, but other schools in the area didn't fair as well.

The data used by the Ohio Department of Education measures four- and five-year graduation rates and placement rates for the 2010-2011 school year.

The Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties career and technical centers each received A's for their four-year graduation rates. Columbiana received the highest grade in the area with a 96 percent whereas Mahoning and Trumbull each received 94 percent.

The Choffin Career & Technical Center in Youngstown received a failing grade of 75 percent for both its four- and five-year graduation rates.

Trumbull received the highest grade for five-year graduation rates with a 95-percent A, Columbiana was next highest in the area with a 91-percent B and Mahoning followed with an 89-percent C.

The Mahoning County Career and Technical Center received a 95-percent grade for job placement in the Mahoning Valley with the Trumbull and Choffin centers right behind at 94-percent grades. Columbiana, however, received a 72-percent D for placement rates.
