Bedford, Ohio – Bedford City Schools released a comprehensive, community-oriented companion to the State of Ohio’s School District Report Card. Called a “Quality Profile,” the report includes additional accountability measures that better define a high quality education and are not included in the state’s report card. The report can be found on the district’s website at www.bedford.k12.oh.us. A hard copy of the Quality Profile can also be obtained from the district’s Administration Center at 475 Northfield Rd., or from any of the schools.
The Quality Profile’s content is divided into six categories: academics, arts, student leadership and activities, fiscal stewardship, parent and community involvement, and student services. These are elements of a high quality public education, as defined by residents of the community.
“Over the last several years, school districts across the state have been surveying residents to determine factors they value in their child’s education that are not measured on the state report card,” said Superintendent Andrea Celico, PhD. “As a result, the district has prepared this expanded report that describes, in detail, the programs and values of our school system.”
The Quality Profile is supported by the Alliance for High Quality Education, an education consortium that works to improve educational opportunities for students and to speak for member districts on matters of educational policy and funding. The state report card was released recently by the Ohio Department of Education.
