Challenging Today’s Students to Become Tomorrow’s Leaders!

The Mission of Minster Local Schools, “Challenging Today’s Students to Become Tomorrow’s Leaders,” is to ensure that each student discovers and develops his or her unique talents and interests while living the values associated with being a leader.

While we strive to meet the needs of our students, the Ohio Department of Education rates each school and district on specific marks of performance – called measures – within six broad categories or components.
The components and their definitions are listed below.

  • Achievement
    • How well are students performing on state tests and are they meeting established thresholds?
  • Progress
    • Are all students growing academically? A “C” represents one year’s expected growth.
  • Gap Closing
    • Are students in all demographic groups making gains in reading and math?
  • K-3 Literacy
    • Are struggling readers on track to proficiency in kindergarten – third grade? NR=no record which indicates not enough kindergartners where off track so no record is established.
  • Graduation Rate
    • Are students successfully finishing high school with a diploma in four or five years?
  • Prepared for Success
    • How prepared are students for future opportunities?
      Considerations include:
  • College entrance exam scores.
  • An honors diploma.
  • An industry-recognized credential or group of credentials.
  • Advanced Placement test scores.
  • International Baccalaureate test scores.
  • College Credit Plus credits.
