Logan Elm School District Ranked 64th out of 824 Districts in Value Added
Today, the Ohio Department of Education released its annual value added rankings. The state ranked 824 public, private and charter school districts throughout the state. Logan Elm School District was ranked 64 out of 824 in value added! Value added is used to determine if a district is meeting expected growth for its students. If a district meets expected growth, they receive a "C". Logan Elm received an "A" in this category on its most recent report card from the Ohio Department of Education. This is a great accomplishment by our district. Congratulations to our students, teachers and administrators for this ranking!
Logan Elm School District Exceeds the State Average on 2013 ACT Results
This morning local media outlets reported that the ACT scores of many districts in the state declined this year. I am pleased to report that our average test scores exceeded the state averages in English, Reading, Science and overall composite. Logan Elm High School scores were also higher than the scores reported over the past five years in our district. Students who indicated they completed the most rigorous coursework at Logan Elm High School had an average score of 25.9 in science and a 24 in mathematics. This would include taking Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Trigonometry and Calculus. The ACT is a curriculum-based test in English, Mathematics, Reading and Science. The highest score on this test is a 36.
The following is a summary of our scores.
The district will continue to work on preparing our students to be college and career ready!
