The Knox County Career Center’s report card from the Ohio Department of Education included good scores in graduation rate and post-program placement.

 

MOUNT VERNON — As do other public school districts, the Knox County Career Center receives a report card from the Ohio Department of Education, and as with other report cards, the data can be confusing.

For example, KCCC received an “A” for its 98.6 percent graduation rate (which is above the state average) and a 93.4 percent, or an “A,” in Post-Program Placement, which measures the proportion of students who are employed, in an apprenticeship, in the military or are enrolled in post-secondary education or advanced training within six months of graduation. However, KCCC’s Prepared for Success grade, calculated with a formula that includes remediation-free ACT scores, Honors Diplomas and/or 12 points of Industry Credentials, is an “F.”
