Columbus City Schools improved on their F grade they received in 2018, with a D for the 2019 year.

“While our overall grade of a ‘D’ is certainly not the end goal, it does show improvement over last year and now allows us to focus on the long-term success of our District,” said Superintendent Dr. Talisa Dixon. “These efforts will begin this year with an educational visioning process with community stakeholders, which will lead us to create a new multi-year strategic plan.

“This year’s report cards show continuous improvement is ongoing and that, across Ohio, we are getting better and better at challenging, preparing and empowering each child,” said Paolo DeMaria, superintendent of public instruction. “We are seeing positive results from the focus on equity, partnerships and quality schools for all students. I applaud the hard work by students, teachers, parents and community members that has led to the progress we see. That said, we must keep pushing forward. We will continue to implement Each Child, Our Future, Ohio’s shared strategic plan for education, and keep looking for ways to more effectively serve the state’s 1.7 million students.”
