Report cards are out for all state schools

Chisholm Public Schools fared well on school report cards issued Thursday by the state, garnering the only two A’s in the county. Enid Public Schools brought home eight B’s and six C’s.

A-F School Report Cards were released by Oklahoma State Department of Education.

Each school in the state got an overall grade of A to F, and grades for each of four performance categories. The composite grade is calculated by:

• One-third for student achievement in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and writing, called “2012 Student Achievement.”

• One-third for whole-school performance, including attendance rate, dropout rate, percent of students taking advanced course work, and bonus categories of school climate and parent and community engagement. This section of the report card is called “Overall Student Growth.”

• Seventeen percent each for overall student progress made, called “Whole School Performance,” and progress made by the bottom 25 percent of students, called “Bottom Quartile Student Growth.” However, for schools such as Chisholm, where there is not a “bottom 25 percent” of students, the whole school performance grade is one-third of the overall grade.

Chisholm High School was one of 72 high schools in the state to get an A. Chisholm Elementary School was one of only 45 elementary schools statewide to get an A.

Chisholm Middle School, Emerson Middle School and Waller Middle School each got a B, as did 273 middle schools in Oklahoma. Longfellow Middle School earned a C, as did 226 middle schools in the state.

Among Enid elementary schools, Adams, Eisenhower, Glenwood, Hayes and Hoover got B’s. Statewide, 292 elementary schools were given an overall grade of B.

Coolidge, Garfield, McKinley, Monroe and Taft elementary schools were given C’s, as were 272 elementary schools in Oklahoma.

Enid High School got a B, as did 277 high schools in Oklahoma.
