Keener ‘pleased overall’ by Bay schools marks in state report card

By Jeff Gallatin


Superintendent Clint Keener said he was pleased overall and that the district would continue to look for ways to develop students’ learning skills after reviewing the results of the Bay Village City School District’s results in the annual state report card.

“We are pleased that overall, our students

exceeded expected growth,” he said. “We will continue to drive forward to attempt to exceed expected growth, as measured by this annual test for

all students. At the same time, we will continue to focus on development of the whole child as a learner.”

Keener was pleased the district placed among the top 30 districts statewide, even with the changes in the grading system this year. Keener said the

new grading scale can be tougher for districts that traditionally have had students who are high achievers.

“The way the grading scale is designed for the student growth-based measures, a C is awarded if the students in a group make expected growth,” he said. “To earn a higher grade, the students must exceed expected growth.”

Overall, Keener said he was pleased to note that Bay again ranked among the highest districts in

the state, with a tie for 27th place among the rankings. He said the district will adjust to the new

ranking scales while continuing to emphasize how to best help district students have the best learning
