Hudson --The Ohio Department of Education released the final state report card rankings Feb. 27, and the Hudson district was ranked "excellent" meeting 26 of 26 performance indicators.
Academic indicators include math, reading, writing, science and social studies. Other indicators are graduation rate and attendance rate, which were both at 96.1 percent.
The district received a 109.2 performance index, which looks at the performance of every student, not just those who score proficient or higher.
Value-added data is also factored in. Value-added data represents the progress districts have made since last school year in fourth through eighth grades in reading and math, according to the ODE.
The data also showed that fourth-graders did not meet the value-added expectations in reading and math. Fifth-graders exceeded expectation in reading, but did not meet expectations in math, according to the data.
Sixth-graders exceeded the value-added expectations in both reading and math. Seventh-graders met the value-added expectations in both reading and math.
Eighth graders exceeded value-added expectations in reading and met the expectations in math, according to the data.
The release of the final 2011-2012 state report card was scheduled for August 2012 but was postponed pending the conclusion of the investigation by the Auditor of State for grade tampering.
