The Ohio Department of Education released its new state report cards Aug. 22. Twinsburg as a district met all 24 indicators in the report and was given an "A" in student achievement.
Before this year the scale used labels to rate the district, which went four-straight years with "Excellent With Distinction," the highest overall rating.
While there is no encompassing grade for a district until 2015, according to a media release from the school district, the new report card is designed to offer a clearer picture of schools’ strengths and weaknesses for all types of students.
Here are some of the areas the district was graded:
- Student achievement Results (A)
- Value-added for general population (A)
- Value-added for gifted students (A)
- Value-added for lowest 20 percent (F)
- Value-added for students with disabilities (F)

“The District has already begun to carefully examine the data, student by student," Superintendent Kathryn Powers said. "We must make strategic instructional changes to improve these Value-Added results for the current school year and moving forward in time. It is essential that every teacher know the 'story' of every student they work with so that we can plan instruction based on the needs of every individual child."
