STATE SUPERINTENDENT'S
SCHOOL OF DISTINCTION AWARD:


The Schools of Distinction program is an initiative designed by the State superintendent of public instruction to recognize schools whose students (including students with disabilities) achieve high academic performance.

At each School of Distinction, at least 75 percent of all students, including students with disabilities, scored proficient or above on a combination of all proficiency and achievement tests and Ohio Graduation Tests administered during the past three years. Selected schools have at least 4 percent of the students identified as students with disabilities, and at 13 of the schools, 10 percent or more are so identified.
