Harsh Ohio winter delays school report cards

Posted: Updated:
HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) - Ohio school officials say the late release of district report cards due to winter weather is inconvenient as teachers and administrators prepare for the new school year.

The Ohio Department of Education extended spring testing windows this year due to numerous weather-related school closings, which has caused delays in report card preparation.

Marianne Mottley of the state's education department told the Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News that the report cards, which are usually released in August, aren't expected until mid-September this year.

School officials say districts use the report cards for assessment and to identify improvement areas as they start a new school year.

Until the report cards are released, school districts can access raw test scores, performance indexes and graduation rates through an online data center.
