The Ohio Department of Education recently released the 2011-2012 State Report Card for school districts across the state. We are proud to announce that Canal Winchester Schools received the rating of “Excellent” making this the third year that our schools received a grade of at least an “Excellent” for student performance. This is a tremendous accomplishment that reflects the strength of quality teaching and widespread community support.
The District met 25 out of 26 indicators and earned a Performance Index of 100.3.Although our district wide Value Added score was below expected growth, Canal Winchester Middle School and Winchester Trail Elementary both meet Value Added growth in their respective buildings.Value Added results are computed only for buildings that include sufficient testing data for students in grades 4 through 8, subjects Reading and Math. Not meeting district wide Value Added is an area of concern that we will continue to address. Our expectations are to earn the highest state rating in every tested area. Our teachers, support staff and administrators work incredibly hard to ensure student success on a daily basis.
We also understand that Canal Winchester Local School District is more than just a report card. We provide great educational and extracurricular opportunities that are preparing students for their future. We will continue to focus on our mission of teaching all students to become effective and responsible citizens in the 21st century.
