Although not complete, preliminary date from the Ohio Department of Education on the State Report Cards show area districts have kept in line with past performances.
Delphos City, Elida, Fort Jennings, Lincolnview and Ottoville schools all met the Adequate Yearly Progress and Value Added markers. Delphos, Fort Jennings and Ottovile met all 26 markers and Elida came up short on fifth-grade math and science and Lincolnview on fifth- and seventh-grade math.
Delphos City Schools Interim Superintendent Frank Sukup said he is pleased with the preliminary report.
“Our grade card is a tribute to our teachers, students, parents and community,” he said. “We all worked hard and did an excellent job. The community can be proud of its school system.”
Sukup attributed this year’s scores and several of the past year’s on a curriculum mapping initiative.
“When we started mapping throughout the grades, it was difficult. Anything of this magnitude is hard to get started but once you have it, you can build on it from year to year and you don’t have to reinvent the wheel,” Sukup said. “Our curriculum mapping has started to pay dividends and I believe it will continue to do so.”
