FORT JENNINGS — School board members were pleased to learn Wednesday Fort Jennings Local School are again rated “Excellent” on its Ohio Department of Education School Report Card.
The district met all 26 indicators, as well as the Annual Yearly Progress and Value-Added and rated a 103.2 on the Performance Index.
The board noted the challenges faced by the ODE with attendance questions from several districts in the Columbus area.
Superintendent Nick Langhals told the board he is interested to see how the ODE handles the school ratings next year.
“They were supposed to change the rating to a letter grade this year but the attendance-reporting scandal made that impossible,” he said. “Next year they are supposed to ge t a letter-grade rating. I have a problem with that. We don’t give our students one grade for the whole grading period; they get a grade in each class. I don’t know how fair it is to give districts one grade when there are 26 indicators.”
