The First Bell education blog now has state report cards for our area from the 2005-2006 school year though the most current report cards for last year. Look for them in the right hand column, just below the links for local school districts (reminder, I've linked to the Summit County districts, but there's also a link in the middle of the list that will take you all districts in Ohio with a Web site).
The report card data was compiled by our computer assisted reporting manager, David Knox, and appears on Ohio.com each year and is reproduced in the print edition each year. Now you can click on all that data in one place. We break it down by district, high school, middle school and elementary school. We also have data on local charter schools.
