Barberton schools report making big gains on Ohio Department of Education tests including double digit improvements in nine areas and being above state average in five.
“It’s all about momentum,” said Superintendent Jeff Ramnytz in a statement. “We have started to institute a lot of changes over the past couple of years, and it is exciting to see that they are working.”
Ramnytz stressed the improvements are the result of a lot of hard work by teachers and administrators to make a difference in the lives of students and the community.”
“State tests are important to the state, but they don’t always measure how we can impact a student in a positive way,” Ramnytz said in a statement. “We want to meet each student where they are at, and help them achieve so when they walk across our Barberton stage at graduation they are ready to be enrolled in college, employed in a great career, and or enlisted in the military.”
