The Ohio Department of Education released its first wave of data related to last school year’s grade cards. The information covers K-3 literacy, graduation rates and college-and career-readiness measures.

The rest of the information -- academic achievement, progress and gap closing -- is expected to be released at the end of February. However a full, overall grade for each school and school district will not be available. 

State lawmakers passed a safe-harbor law that delays that overall grade until 2018 to give administrators, teachers and students more time to adjust to new assessments. The first round of grades has been posted online.
