School districts across the State of Ohio received their official Report Cards outlining their academic performance during the 2017-2018 School Year. While the State Report Card’s formulas have drawn criticism of late, the Brooklyn City Schools is proud to acknowledge the areas of growth in student achievement. Brooklyn City Schools’ Performance Index improved, as well as the 4-year Graduation Rate from 91.5% to 97.5%. Where zero indicators were met in 2016-2017, last year, the Brooklyn City Schools increased to three indicators met. Finally, and perhaps most significantly, the District’s Progress component grade improved from a B to an A! The A received in this Progress measure indicates that Brooklyn students exceeded a year’s worth of academic growth last year. This is testament to the teachers and administrators focusing on the content learning standards and addressing quality instruction and assessment. Brooklyn City School’s staff is committed to continued focus on the academic achievement of all students.
According to Brooklyn City Schools Superintendent Dr. Mark Gleichauf, “The Brooklyn City Schools continues to improve its performance on the state report card, as we now find ourselves in the third consecutive year of similar assessments. We are proud of these upgrades but are still working and anticipating more improvements going forward. The teachers and staff are continuously working to improve their instructional practices to guarantee student achievement.”
Thank you for your continued support of the Brooklyn City Schools.
