Dear Falcon Community,
The Clinton-Massie Local School District received great news from the Ohio Department of Education on Sept. 14th. Our district received a Progress Component Grade of “B” for the 2015-16 school year! This component looks closely at the growth that all students are making based on their past performance. There are four measures within this component: all students, gifted students, students with disabilities and students whose academic performance is in the lowest 20% of the state. An expected growth is “C” meaning students grew an expected value of 1 year. Our grade of “B” indicates that students here at Clinton-Massie are making more than 1 year of growth in 1 academic year.
Our preliminary achievement data that we received in the summer was disappointing. As our State Superintendent, Paolo DeMaria stated in the Report Card Webinar on Sept. 14, “don’t jump to conclusions,” and “the 2016 Report Card cannot be compared to last year”. This report card is reflective of new tests, different indicators and increased benchmarks.
We will continue to use data to inform us on how we can continue to provide the best possible education to every student here at Clinton-Massie. While we can always do better, we know that the students here at Massie are learning and growing!
