Review scheduled for troubled Ohio school district

Published:

LORAIN, Ohio (AP) -- A state review team will soon visit a Cleveland-area school district to see how well it's addressed academic performance problems and gotten back on track.

The Morning Journal in Lorain reports (http://bit.ly/1kPaehr ) that an Ohio Department of Education administrator will lead a team into the Lorain City Schools on May 12.

Administrator Clairie Huff-Franklin's team will help the district's academic distress commission revise its academic recovery plan for next year. The state assumed control of the district last year because of unmet academic standards.

The state team will analyze data and records and spend a week observing district activities and interviewing administrators, principals, the president of the teachers' union, students, staff and others.

Huff-Franklin says overall feedback will come right way, followed by a full report a couple weeks later.
