On October 14, the Ohio Department of Education released the State Report Card for the 2020-2021 school year. For the second year in a row, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the State Report Card did not assign letter grades for school districts.
However, we are pleased to announce that the Riverside Local School District ranked 2nd out of 9 Lake County school districts in the Performance Index rating!
The Performance Index, as defined by the Ohio Department of Education, “measures the achievement of every student, not just whether or not they reach “proficient.” Districts and schools receive points for every student’s level of achievement. The higher the student’s level, the more points the school earns toward its index. This rewards districts and schools that improve the performance of highest- and lowest-performing students.”
In addition to the District ranking, Riverside High School ranked 3rd among 10 Lake County public high schools in the Performance Index rating.
While we are pleased with these rankings, there is always room for improvement. We will continue to strive to provide the best quality education to our students to help them grow and develop.
The annual Riverside Quality Profile will be released soon. The Quality Profile is a more comprehensive, community-oriented companion piece to the State Report Card. The Quality Profile provides additional information about the school district beyond standardized testing and other statistical measures.
