Clermont County schools earn high ratings on state report card

Eight Clermont County schools achieved excellent ratings on the state report cards released by the Ohio Department of Education last week. Three districts further achieved excellent with distinction ratings.

Milford Exempted Village School District achieved an excellent with distinction rating for the second year in a row. West Clermont Local Schools and Bethel-Tate Local School each earned the rating for the first time since the “with distinction” qualification was added for the 2007-2008 school year.

Williamsburg Local Schools achieved an effective rating by meeting 76.9 percent of the indicators including standardized testing results, graduation rate, and attendance rate. The district also achieved a performance index of 96.3. Williamsburg did not meet annual yearly progress requirements and achieved less than one year of expected growth for individual students over last year.
