Chardon High School Chemistry Students Learn How to Acquire Accurate Information about Matter

Chardon High School Chemistry teacher, Jeanne Clark (center) works with her students during class on how to use various measuring devices. Chemistry is the study of matter so understanding chemical processes depends on the ability to acquire accurate information about matter. Often, this information is quantitative, in the form of measurements.

District Releases Quality Profile

Chardon Schools has joined 85 other school districts across Ohio to release a more comprehensive assessment of our overall performance to supplement the state’s district report card. Because the state report card focuses primarily on how well our students perform on state mandated assessments, we believe it is important to inform our community of this additional information to provide a greater understanding of how the district is addressing and meeting community expectations. Called a “Quality Profile,” the report includes additional accountability measures that define a high-quality education that are not captured by the state report card. The Profile helps to evaluate the effectiveness of a school district beyond standardized testing and other statistical measures provided in the state report card. The Profile is based on six categories; academics, arts, student leadership and activities, fiscal stewardship, parent and community involvement, and student services. The profile can be viewed on the district’s homepage at Chardon Local School District.

The Quality Profile is sponsored by the Alliance for High Quality Education, a statewide education consortium that works to improve educational opportunities for students and to represent member districts on matters of educational policy and funding.
