Dear Brooklyn City Schools Families and Community,
The Ohio Department of Education recently released the results of school district performance on the State Report Card for the 2021-2022 school year. The state’s Local Report Card gives our community a snapshot of the progress made by the Brooklyn City Schools in raising achievement and preparing our students for the future.
The Ohio General Assembly amended Ohio’s accountability law in the summer of 2021. As a result, schools and districts now receive star ratings for five components instead of traditional letter grades.
Brooklyn City Schools received ratings in 5 areas: Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation and Early Literacy. We are proud of our students and staff, and the results they produced during the 2021-2022 school year. An overview of the results is featured below and can also be viewed on the Ohio Department of Education website.
While important, the report cards recently shared by the Ohio Department of Education provide a limited snapshot of student academic achievement and growth, and are one of several tools used by the District to measure our students’ performance and growth across various content areas. Nonetheless, we will celebrate these results and continue to use all assessment data to make improvements in what we do each day for our students.
At the Brooklyn Board of Education Regular Meeting on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, Ms. Lisa Deliz, Director of Teaching and Learning, will present these results, along with other assessment data from last school year. The focus of this presentation will be both informational and to learn about the district’s future strategic planning in the area of student achievement and academic growth. I encourage you to view the presentation by Ms. Deliz on October 18th by visiting the district’s YouTube channel.
I want to thank the Board of Education, faculty, classified staff, administrators and families for the continued support and strength you have shown over the past 2-plus years to work through a pandemic and advance the achievement and growth of our students. Together, we will continue to promote the Tradition, Pride, and Excellence of the Brooklyn City Schools.
