Ohio to reissue 4 school districts' report cards

Written by 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Department of Education says report cards for the Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo districts for the 2011-12 school year will be recalculated. Their 2012-13 ratings will be scrutinized as the agency expands its investigation about whether schools improperly altered student attendance data.

A department spokesman said Wednesday that evidence of 2011-12 data alterations prompted further review of the following year.

Columbus also will have its 2010-2011 report card corrected. New report cards for that year were issued earlier for schools in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Toledo and three more districts that were found to have changed attendance data to improve performance ratings.

Ohio's superintendent says data-scrubbing won't be tolerated.

The department also is investigating whether any licensed educators were involved with improper data reporting and should face disciplinary action.
