Cleveland Metropolitan School District earns failing grades on state's report card

Cleveland Schools get all F's on report card

COLUMBUS - It's F's across the board for the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. 

The district received failing grades in each of the 16 categories on the Ohio Department of Education's report cards out Thursday morning. 

Grades are awarded in a variety of what are dubbed "performance measures,"  including graduation rates, overall achievement, if the achievement gap is closing, and how well students in kindergarten through third grade are reading. 

It's the first year the report cards feature overall letter grades in each category.

Early reports indicated schools across the state would be seeing lower grades this year. 

An early analysis of results shows CMSD received the lowest grades out of all of Ohio's "Big 8" urban districts.
