District report cards were released by ..., 20 Sept 2014 [cached]
District report cards were released by the state this week for Ohio school districts, including technical schools. Vantage Career Center Superintendent Staci Kaufman spoke to the Times Bulletin Wednesday about scores Vantage received on this year’s report card. Pictured above, this file photo shows the exterior of Vantage Career Center. (DHI Media File Photo) District report cards were released by the state this week for Ohio school districts, including technical schools. Vantage Career Center Superintendent Staci Kaufman spoke to the Times Bulletin Wednesday about scores Vantage received on this year’s report card.
Vantage Superintendent Staci Kaufman explained, "The report card for career technical schools continue to change. We received our first one last year, and each year they are adding a new graded element. This year we were surprised to see that our Technical Skill Attainment was rated a D, but we also know that that score reflects all of our students in our feeder schools as well as the Vantage-enrolled students at Vantage if they are in a workforce-development program. What that means is, technical skill attainment drops a score based on the percentage of students tested."
According to Kaufman, Vantage is not required to give state tests in each of its programs at Vantage or skill tests in programs like agriculture or STEM at the feeder schools.
Even though the technical skill attainment score took her by surprise, Kaufman noted that the grade card helps the district to focus.
"We like it because it provides benchmarks so we can see how we are doing," she said. But the report card content continues to evolve each year and we're given no warning of what to prepare for. They've taken a snapshot in time, and that gives a realistic picture."
Kaufman also pointed out that next year, the JVSD report cards will adding more components to be graded. In addition, grade cards for the K-12 schools will likely have a grade for the JVSD that the feeder schools belong to. Neither the K-12 schools nor the career-tech districts know what that grade will be based upon.
"So we're trying to do the best job we can with what we know and keep our staff focused on each and everyday and making sure our kids have the skills they need to get out and get employed. They're is just a big chasm in what the state's tests measure and what is taught in the classroom,"concluded Kaufman.
Overall, Kaufman sees some positives from the grade card this year.
She stated, "We are excited that our C from last year in Post-Program Placement, which was the first graded category other than the graduation rate, we worked on that C and brought it up to a B this year.
said Kaufman."We know that our technical skill attainment score does not accurately reflect what is being taught in the classroom.
