2013 Annual Report District The Annual Report includes historic as well as current data for all district and state testing instruments currently administered. Olentangy Local School District is committed to analyzing data beyond the state report card to measure improvement in academic achievement. The goal of the Annual Report is to organize district data around Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) benchmarks, which go beyond state report cards to provide a more in-depth review of Olentangy student achievement. Each section includes a graphic representation of the data, as well as brief analysis summary points. You can find additional data and reports by visiting our website—www.olentangy.k12.oh.us. It remains a goal of Olentangy’s Continuous Improvement Plan to develop other benchmarks, beyond test scores and surveys, to measure overall district quality and improvement. The difficulty in measuring arts, athletics, academics, and other areas includes determining if measuring awards earned or participation rates are the best measure of quality. Also, the data need to be easily quantified and collected. Efforts to draft benchmarks in these areas will be ongoing. In addition to Olentangy data, data from state comparison districts is also included. The Office of Policy Research and Analysis of the Ohio Department of Education generates a state comparison group for every district each year. Utilizing numerous variables, a rank order list of the twenty districts most like Olentangy is created. As often as possible, all of the data from these twenty districts are included for comparison. In any data report of this magnitude, it is inevitable that some corrections may have been missed during the editing process. If any concerns about accuracy or format are noted during the review of this document, please contact the Curriculum and Instruction Department at (740)657-4055.

Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) The Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) score is determined using multiple data points. For each student subgroup, the percentage of students at or above proficient is compared to the statewide goal (83.4% for reading and 78.5% for math). A hundred points are earned if the subgroup met the statewide goal. Alternatively, points are awarded based on the improvement from the result last year, which is compared to the gap between the current result and the goal. Subgroups of less than 30 students are not rated (NR). 12-13 AMO Goals—OLSD Student Group All Students

2013 Annual Report District Performance Index Score The performance Index Score reflects the achievement of every tested student. The score is a weighted average of all tested subjects in grade 3—8 and grade 10. The most weight is given to the advanced students (1.2), then the weights decrease for each performance level. This creates a scale of 0 to 120 points. Performance Index Scores over time show trends in school achievement.

The criteria are: enrollment, percentage of poverty, median income, percentage of land that is used for agriculture, population density, percentage of minorities, and percentage of population with a college degree. Because these criteria change annually so does our group. The twenty schools in our similar district group this year are: Avon Lake City, Avon Local, Beavercreek City, Centerville City, Dublin City, Forest Hills Local, Gahanna-Jefferson City, Hilliard City, Hudson City, Lakota Local, Loveland City, Mason City, New Albany-Plain Local, Perrysburg Exempted Village, Pickerington Local, Solon City, Springboro Community City, Sylvania City, Upper Arlington City, and Worthington City.

Regents Data The Ohio Board of Regents publishes an annual data report including many points of data about high school graduates/freshman college students. These data reflect only the students who attend Ohio public higher education institutions and must therefore be considered in this context. Regents Data Reports are written to reflect students who are freshmen in college two years prior to the report’s date. The Class of 2011 report details performance of 08-09 college freshmen, while the 2010 report details performance of 07-08 freshmen, the 2009 report details performance of 06-07 freshmen and the 2008 report of 05-06 college freshmen. This report is published in January of each year. % Students attending % Taking Developmental Coursework Ohio Public College in Ohio Public College OLSD Class 11 46% 24% OLSD Class 10 56% 25% OLSD Class 09 56% 25% OLSD Class 08 52% 34% OLSD Class 07 61% 34%

2013 Annual Report District Benchmark 7: Responsible financial management • Obtain annual GFOA (Government Finance Officer Association) award for excellence in financial reporting for the district’s CAFR. MET—The District received the GFOA Award for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the District’s FY12 CAFR on September 4, 2013. The District submitted the FY12 CAFR to the national Governmental Finance Officer Association. Its review resulted in the District once again receiving their Award for Excellence in Financial Reporting. This is the 15th year the district has received this award. •

Maintain or increase the district’s bond rating with both Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s. MET—The District received Aa1 and AA+ bond ratings by Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s respectively on June 13 & 14, 2013. The agencies reaffirmed the ratings as part of issuance of general obligation $33,315,000 refunding bonds and $7,055,000 construction bonds that settled on August 12, 2013.

Receive a successful unqualified audit with fewer than five minor compliance citations. MET—The District received an unqualified audit opinion with less than five minor compliance citations on January 24, 2013.

Maintain or decrease the total expenditure per pupil ranking and the administrative expenditure per pupil ranking as benchmarked against comparable districts as determined by the state of Ohio and OLSD Board of Education. NOT MET—The District’s total expenditure per pupil ranking did not decrease as benchmarked against comparable districts and other OLSD selected comparable districts. The District decreased its administrative expenditure per pupil from FY11 to FY12, but did not meet the goal of maintaining its administrative expenditure per pupil ranking from FY11 to FY12. Making these comparisons year to year can be misleading because the ODE comparison districts do change from year to year based on the socioeconomic factors in districts.

Benchmark 8: Resource Allocation and Utilization that balance fiscal responsibility as they support student achievement • Achieve an “overall pupil/certified teacher ratio” at a level of 15:1 or higher as measured yearly on the OLSD 5-year forecast. This includes all certified staff such as guidance, special education, special area teachers, etc. recognizing that most individual classroom ratios will be higher. MET—“Overall pupil/certified teacher ratio” was 15.85:1 for the 2012-13 school year. • Provide a Capital Improvement Plan and update report on a yearly basis. Overall Pupil/Certified Teacher Ratio The positive trend in “overall pupil/certified teacher ratio” is a direct result of on-going efforts to identify staffing efficiencies that enable us to deliver a higher quality educational product at a low cost. School Year 12-13 11-12 10-11 09-10 08-09 Overall Pupil/Certified Teacher Ratio 15.85 15.42 15.34 14.74 14.57

2013 Annual Report District Recent examples of staffing efficiencies: • Slight increase in student/teacher classroom ratio at the elementary, middle and high school levels, but still below contractual limit • Eighth (8th) grade staffing model • Elementary Orchestra Program (outside the school day) • Elementary literacy support staff (reduced staff from 2 to 1) • High School physical education waiver Facilities and Maintenance During the 2012/2013 school year, the Business Management Department created a plan that allows for the projection of anticipated capital improvements for all OLSD facilities. The creation of the plan took into account the life cycle of the District’s fixed assets. Additional improvement needs were identified at various shareholder group meetings in 2012 and 2013. The costs for the capital improvements were obtained and the data consolidated into spreadsheets. The information was detailed out to reflect OLSD District totals, costs per building, yearly costs, and improvements needed by category type. For the summer of 2013, we planned over 265 “improvement projects” throughout all of the OLSD facilities. The largest projects were: Asphalt Improvements

OHS, OSMS, OBMS, HES, SRES, AES, ACES, TRES ($275,000 FY13 budget and $182,654 advanced from FY14) $457,654

Grandstand Replacement Hot Water Heating Needs Safety Improvements New Corridor Lockers HVAC Improvements Tennis Court Re-surfacing

OSMS OHMS, ISES, OSMS All Sites OOHS, OLHS, OSMS OHS, WRES, OLMS, OLHS, East Transportation OOHS and OLHS

$148,285 $121,870 $65,096 $78,048 $49,633 $43,930

The budget for all 28 facilities for 2013 was $1,100,000. Actual costs for 2013 came in at $1,045,742. The number of projects completed and the cost per site is as follows: Facility Type High Schools Middle Schools Elementary Schools Central Office Transportation/Other

Number of Projects Total Spent 72 permanent improvement projects $251,468 73 permanent improvement projects $355,652 99 permanent improvement projects $400,995 13 permanent improvement projects $14,307 10 permanent improvement projects $23,317

The balance of the 2013 funding is being deferred to 2014, for needed repairs to the track at Liberty High School. The repairs to the track were put on hold in 2013 due to the installation of artificial turf at the same location in the summer of 2013. Planning to identify all capital improvement needs and estimated costs for 2014 (and beyond) is currently underway.
