EdChoice Program…you may not believe this

(LFC Comments: We were made aware of another assault on educational choices, and thought that you would like to know about it.   Looks like the teachers’ unions and the schools’ lobbyists are twisting some arms in the legislature.)

Here is an excerpt from the article:
“Lawmakers are threatening to significantly cut the EdChoice Voucher program, which many families rely on to attend Protestant and Catholic schools. Local public schools in your area are pushing to have the program rolled back which means students in your community may no longer be able to access a Christ-centered education.”

(LFC Comments: This article started us “down the rabbit hole” to find out more about the EdChoice program for Ohio schools.  We did a basic search of the Ohio Department of Education website, and found the following very interesting information.)

Criteria-for-EdChoice-Designated-Public-Schools-20-21-11072019

Here are some excerpts from the website:

“Each year, Ohio identifies public schools whose students are eligible to receive EdChoice scholarships to attend qualifying private schools. Each of these public schools is designated an EdChoice school. An EdChoice scholarship pays or partially pays the tuition for a child’s private school attendance.

The Ohio General Assembly directed the Ohio Department of Education to transition to new state tests in mathematics and English language arts in the 2015-2016 school year. As part of the transition, the legislature created provisions that gave schools “Safe Harbor” from being named EdChoice schools. Under these provisions, the Department will refrain from using state test results from school years 2014-2015, 2015-2016
and 2016-2017 to add new public schools to Ohio’s EdChoice schools list. The Department will use data from the 2013-2014, 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 Ohio School Report Cards to designate EdChoice public schools for the 2019-2020 school year. Each EdChoice-designated school met one or more of the following conditions.”

1) Performance
If any of the following is true for two report cards from 2014, 2018 and 2019: The school received a Performance Index grade of D or F and a Value-Added (overall) grade of D or F on the 2014 Report Card or, the school received an overall grade of D or F or a Value-Added (overall) grade of F on the 2018 or 2019 report card.

2) Graduation
The school serves grades 9-12 and received a Graduation Rate grade of D or F on any two report cards from 2014, 2018 and 2019.

3) Lowest 10 percent
The school ranked in the lowest 10 percent of public school buildings on the Performance Index on the Ohio School Report Cards for any two Performance Index rankings from 2014, 2018 and 2019; the school did not receive an overall grade of A or B on the 2019 report card. Lowest 10 percent of Performance Index ranking uses the same accountability rules that create the official Performance Index ranking. Cleveland
Municipal schools, community schools and STEM schools not operated by a district are removed before calculating the 10th percentile.

4) Literacy
The school received a grade of D or F for Improving At-Risk K-3 Readers on any two report cards from 2014, 2018 and 2019.

5) District Performance *
The school’s public district has an open enrollment policy under which no student in the grade level is assigned to a specific school building; and the district received a Performance Index grade of D or F and overall Value-Added grade of D or F on the 2013 and 2014 report card; and the district received an overall grade of D or F or Value-Added (overall) grade of F on the 2018 or 2019 report card.
* No districts would be eligible under this criterion.

6) Academic Distress
The school’s public district has an academic distress commission.

Note: Families who live in the Cleveland Municipal School District are not eligible to apply for EdChoice scholarships.”

(LFC Comments:  There are some student requirements to be eligible for the EdChoice program.  Please read the website for details.  the fact that the children of Cleveland Municipal Schools are not eligible create a huge question mark in our minds.  Why are they exempted???)

(LFC Comment: You may be interested in what Lake County schools are on the EdChoice list for poor performances.  Here is a link to the complete list of Ohio schools in the program, and then a list of the Lake County schools.)

(LFC Comments:  It is going to be difficult to select a winner for the 2020 Chutzpah Award.  Should Wickliffe get it for passing a property tax levy to build  a new school to the detriment of seniors being priced out of their homes?  How about the Willoughby-Eastlake School district for wanting to extract even more money from the taxpayers in March?  Riverside School district may get an honorable mention for even contemplating spending $100+ million to build a new high school while being on the EdChoice list.

Ah yes, it will be a very difficult decision this year!)
