Nordonia Hills City Schools has released its 2017-18 Quality Profile, which Superintendent Dr. Joe Clark called "a more comprehensive assessment of their districts’ performance to supplement the state’s district report card."

In an email to parents announcing the release of the fourth annual profile on Tuesday, Clark said Nordonia Hills is one of around 85 Ohio school districts releasing the profiles because they "felt it was important to once again inform their communities of this additional information to provide them a greater understanding of how their district is addressing and meeting community expectations."

Clark said the report includes additional accountability measures that define a high-quality education. He said participating districts survey residents to determine important factors not being measured by the state, then incorporate those factors in a profile that goes beyond standardized testing and other statistical measures provided in the state report card. The profile is based on six categories; academics, arts, student leadership and activities, fiscal stewardship, parent and community involvement, and student services.

The Quality Profile is sponsored by the Alliance for High Quality Education, a statewide education consortium that works to improve educational opportunities for students and to represent member districts on matters of educational policy and funding.
