These data measure various statistics relating to the students of the school districts of Clark County, compared to the statistics of districts that have similar levels.

“The Performance Index” is defined by the Ohio Department of Education website as “student performance on the Ohio Achievement Assessments/Ohio Graduate Tests at the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade levels and English I, English II, Algebra I, Geometry, Integrated Math I and Integrated Math II” (see Educational Performance Index).

“Spending per pupil” is the amount of funding spent by each school district in Clark county for each pupil enrolled. These data factor in spending for instructors, referring to cost of teaching supplies, as well as spending expenses such as the cost of school lunches (see Spending per Pupil).

“5 year graduation rate” is the rate of students within a district who have graduated for the first time within 5 years of entering ninth grade for the first time. This includes students who graduate for the first time within  four years of entering 9th grade for the first time (see 5 Year Graduation Rate).

“Kindergarten Readiness” is the percentage of children participating in the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (KRA) in the school districts of Clark County who demonstrated readiness for kindergarten. While there are three different categories that children are placed into based on their scores, these data display only those in the Demonstrating readiness category, which is defined by the Ohio Department of Education as children who enter kindergarten “with sufficient skills, knowledge and abilities to engage with kindergarten-level instruction” (see Kindergarten Readiness).
