Little Miami releases Quality Profile

Posted on: September 14, 2015

Little Miami Local Schools joined more than 60 school districts throughout Ohio that have released a more comprehensive companion to the state’s district report card. Called a “Quality Profile,” the report includes additional accountability measures that define a high-quality education and are not captured by the state report card.

Since the state’s release date has been moved to later in the year because of changes made to the state testing program, the profile will provide communities with their first look at current information to assist them in assessing district progress.

This Quality Profile helps to evaluate the effectiveness of a school district beyond standardized testing measures. The content is based on six categories; academics, arts, student leadership and activities, fiscal stewardship, parent and community involvement, and student services.

Participating districts initially surveyed residents to determine factors they value in their child’s education that are not being measured by the state, resulting in a more comprehensive profile that measures those education components that the community considers most important.

Now in its third year of development and being released statewide for the second time, the Quality Profile is sponsored by the Alliance for High Quality Education, a statewide education consortium that works to improve educational opportunities for students and to represent member districts on matters of educational policy and funding.
