They scored four Fs and two Ds in the six major categories including achievement, graduation rates and preparedness for success. But it's among 24 Ohio districts, including municipal school districts in Columbus, Cleveland and Akron, that received all Ds and Fs.</p><p>Parents in the district like Dorothy Harris are concerned. “I’m very concerned now and I’m very upset a bit. I’m staying calm for the cameras but I’m very upset about this.”</p><p>Harris was picking up her four children from Rothenberg Preparatory Academy when she saw the marks for Cincinnati Public Schools.<br></p><p><a rel="nofollow" sl-processed="1" target="_blank" href="/news/cincinnati-superintendent-defends-low-marks-on-state-report-card/41685436"><strong>Watch this story</strong></a></p><p>"I am going to ask the principal and the superintendent about this because I wasn't familiar about the grade failing and this just looks horrible,” said Harris.</p><p>Cincinnati public school officials said parents like Harris shouldn't worry.</p><p>Cincinnati Public Schools Superintendent Mary Ronan pointed out during a news conference Thursday that report card grades for 600 of 608 Ohio school districts dropped in 2015-2016.</p><p>"I would give the state an 'F' on their state report cards," she said.</p><p>"You don't like to see that performance index drop. But it dropped because it changed the calculation. So that's what our frustration is, is trying to explain this to everyone," Ronan said.</p><p>Ronan said another problem is the state testing format: three companies in three years. The uncertainty changes the standards and accuracy, she said.</p><p>“The goal line keeps shifting. And that's what we're all struggling with,” says Ronan.<br></p><p>Ronan says when learning methods and the testing system stabilize, results from this report will be in the district's favor.<br></p><p>CPS grandparent Linda Lee said this is all the more reason to add funding to schools. "Right now they need help from all ends. More teachers to do extra, more volunteers, more mentors, help the little kids that have problems so they can build the grade back up," Lee said.<br></p><p>The superintendent also added that the 32-page report is too complex. Many districts are still trying to figure out what needs to be changed or improved.<br></p><p>Ronan said for a better indicator of the district’s progress she cites higher ACT scores, a climbing graduation rate and an increase in advanced placement classes.<br></p><p>Of the schools in southwest Ohio's eight counties, Indian Hill Exempted Village got the most As: in four of six categories. Madeira and Mariemont got three As and nine schools got two As.</p></div>
