Expanding the Conversation
A successful school district places a high degree of importance on ensuring that all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential inside and outside of the classroom. This profile helps characterize the overall educational value of your school district in areas that matter most in our community.
Mason City Schools joined almost 60 school districts throughout Ohio in releasing a robust companion to the state's Local Report Card. Called a Quality Profile, the report includes additional accountability measures that define a high-quality education.
The Quality Profile helps characterize the overall educational value of public education beyond standardized testing.
In 2012, 10 Southwest Ohio districts - Forest Hills, Indian Hill, Loveland, Madeira, Mariemont, Mason, Milford, Oak Hills, Sycamore, and Wyoming - surveyed residents to determine factors they value in their child's education that were not represented on the state report card. The result is a collaborative report that shares an expanded story of each participating school district.
Now adopted by nearly 60 districts in Ohio, the report is supported by the Alliance for High Quality Education, an education consortium that works to improve educational opportunities for students and represent member districts on matters of educational policy and funding.
