Fedor Supports State Report Card Reform Bill
March 12, 2021
Today, state Senator Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) commended the introduction of House Bill 200 in the Ohio House of Representatives earlier this week.
“When the legislature studied the State report card during the last General Assembly, stakeholders overwhelmingly agreed on one thing: The new report card must be systemically different. It must contain transparent, explicable measurements so our educators and community members can connect over meaningful data,” said Fedor. “House Bill 200, sponsored by my friends Representatives Don Jones and Phil Robinson, strives to do exactly that.”
Among other things, the bill will eliminate the A through F grading system, require report cards to include three-year trend data next to each rating and ends the designation of “indicators met” in the performance component. Additionally, the third grade reading guarantee will be based on the percentage of students promoted who spent all of their years at that district or building.
“These are all recommendations I suggested after listening to stakeholders as a member of the Report Card Study Committee,” Fedor said. “I commend Reps. Jones and Robinson for being a champions on this, and I urge my colleagues in the House to pass H. B. 200 quickly.”
