For the 2013-2014 school year, the district earned a record-high 108.7 overall Performance Index (PI) score. The state average PI score for the 2013-2014 school year was 99.1.
Olentangy Local Schools has again led the way in academic achievement based on the results of the 2013-2014 Ohio School District Report Cards released September 12, 2014.
For the 2013-2014 school year, the district earned a record-high 108.7 overall Performance Index (PI) score. This places Olentangy in the top three school districts in central Ohio and in the top 4.2 percentage of the 610 public school districts statewide to earn all A’s and B’s.
“I am pleased with the results, and we will continue working toward meeting the goal of all A’s,” said Olentangy Local Schools Superintendent Wade Lucas, Ed.D.
The release marks the second year under the state’s new evaluation system, which uses letter grades rather than terms ranging from Excellent to Academic Watch.
A PI ranking is a state calculation that measures overall academic performance based on the results of the Ohio Achievement Assessments and the Ohio Graduation Tests. The state average PI score for the 2013-2014 school year was 99.1.
The revamped report-card grading system is more complex than in the past. In addition to assigning a letter grade, the new reporting method raises the benchmark from 75 percent to 80 percent of a district’s students needing to score “proficient” or better to meet the 24 individual benchmarks. Olentangy has exceeded these levels, meeting 24 of the 24 indicators.
The district also performed well in the value-added categories (a measure of student academic growth within a single school year), and in the sub-group categories which include students with disabilities and students in the lowest 20 percent of the statewide achievement benchmarks. The Olentangy gifted-student population also showed growth in earning an A, up from the letter grade B earned last year.
