School performance data delayed by a statewide attendance-tampering investigation is headed to Ohio districts.
The Ohio Department of Education released the partial report card results Wednesday. The attendance rate, performance index and overall rating were omitted.
The 19-member state school board cleared the delay last month, fearing that underlying data might be flawed.
After allegations arose in three districts, state Auditor Dave Yost launched a statewide investigation into whether low-performing students are improperly removed from the rolls to boost school performance rankings and employee bonuses.
Because a host of funding and programming decisions hinges on the data, the state board later voted to release portions of the report cards unaffected by Yost's probe.
