CPS could rise in state categories




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Ohio ranks public-school districts in one of four categories — academic emergency being the lowest — based on 27 standards tied to students' proficiency test results, graduation and attendance rates.

        Cincinnati Public Schools officials say they have met eight to 10 standards of the 27. Nine would elevate them to the next category, “academic watch.”

        The eight standards CPS met:

        • At least 60 percent of students passed the citizenship, reading, writing and science portions of the 12th-grade proficiency tests. Each section equals a standard.

        • At least 75 percent of cumulative eighth- and ninth-grade students passed the reading and writing portions of the ninth-grade proficiency tests.

        • At least 85 percent of cumulative eighth-, ninth- and 10th-grade students passed the reading and writing portions of the ninth-grade proficiency test.

        Standards possibly met (state formulas could affect scores up or down slightly)

        • At least 60 percent of students passing the math portion of the 12th-grade proficiency test.

        • At least 85 percent of cumulative eighth-, ninth- and 10th-grade students passing the citizenship portion of the ninth-grade test.
