Scrubbing Update: TPS may have to change grades from 2011-12

Posted: Updated:
The state has already told six school districts, including Toledo Public Schools, it will have to change grades from 2010-11.

Now, the state says those districts will have to recalculate report cards from the following year as well.

This all has to do with the controversial practice known as "scrubbing."

That's when school districts withdraw students who have low attendance.

The change in bookkeeping leads to changes in school performance ratings, boosting them in spite of discrepancies.

Last month, the state department of education told six districts, including TPS, it is recalculating the data from the 2010-2011 school year to get a more accurate picture.

In Toledo, that led to drops in performance levels at 5 toledo public schools.

The Columbus Dispatch is now reporting the state is notifying the districts it will recalculate report cards from the following year, 2011-12, and it has started to investigate data from 2012-13.

Last month, the chief academic officer with Toledo Public Schools told 13abc district's overall performance rating dropped by less than 1 percent, and that minor change shows TPS was not maliciously manipulating the numbers.
