Welcome to the 2013-14 school year! We look forward to another challenging and rewarding school year in the Milford Exempted Village School District.
Ohio is changing the way it measures and rates the performance of schools and districts. The 2012-2013 school and district report cards will grade schools and districts with an A-F letter-grade system. Schools and districts will no longer receive labels like “Excellent” or “Continuous Improvement.” In its place, they will receive letter grades on several measures in the same way a student receives grades for his or her classes.
On the report card released on August 23, the district once again met 24 of the 24 performance indicators measured. The Performance Index Score, an overall measure of how all students performed on state tests, remained steady at 105 placing the district in the top 10% of Ohio school districts.
We are also one of 20 school districts to issue our own Quality Profile, which gives a broader focus on what makes a school district successful. This comprehensive report gives us the opportunity to showcase our district and our many successes in so many areas. The content is based on the 10 categories of academics, arts, commitment to improvement, digital learning, fiscal stewardship, parent and community involvement, staff leadership, student activities, student leadership and student services. We feel the report includes additional accountability measures that define a high-quality education and are not captured by the state report card.
Here are links to the State Report Card and Quality Profile.
Parent and community involvement is key to our success in Milford. From our student achievement to the privately-funded turf field that is ready to open at Eagle Stadium, we couldn’t do it without you.
