District report cards were released today. Cleveland Metropolitan School District has made important gains, especially in the early grades.
The K-3 literacy score increased by 13.7% over the prior year, raising the grade from an F to a C and the number of students on track in reading more than doubled from the previous year. 80% of CMSD third-graders met Ohio’s new, higher standard for reading and were promoted to the fourth grade.
There are other measures of progress not captured on the report card, such as increased parent engagement and improved attendance, which can be viewed at clevelandmetroschools.org/TrackOurProgress.
