Youngstown Schools CEO sees progress in report card

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Despite an overall failing grade, Youngstown City Schools CEO Krish Mohip is seeing progress. 

The 2016-17 state report cards were released and the district earned a "B" for one of its components.

"We had a B on Kindergarten to third-grade literacy and that's the highest we've ever received," said Mohip.

The district earned a C in that component last year.

"As far as our five-year graduation rates, we saw 5.6 percent increase in graduation rates there. That's monumental. That's something you don't necessarily see. We're really excited about that. So overall, I'm pleased. We're still overall at an F.  Didn't expect to come in here with all the work that had to happen and move us to a C, but we're expecting to see some really great gains this coming school year," said Mohip

Mohip became YCSD's first CEO in June of 2016. He built up a leadership team and central office operations to build a strong foundation. The district is implementing new instructional methods and Mohip believes next year's report card will reflect even more positive gains.
