Madeira began producing the yearly Quality Profile (QP) in 2012 along with Forest Hills, Indian Hill, Loveland, Mariemont, Mason, Milford, Oak Hills, Sycamore and Wyoming school districts. Participating schools then surveyed residents to determine factors they valued in their child’s education that were not represented on the state’s report card which were Academics, Arts, Student Leadership & Activities, Fiscal Stewardship, Parent & Community Involvement, Student Services, and Staff & District Recognitions.
Today approximately 60 school districts throughout the state produce the annual report to supplement the state’s district report card set to be released later this month. Because the state report card focuses primarily on how well students perform on state mandated assessments and with the impact that COVID had on student instruction and the state testing accountability system last year, participating districts felt it was more important than ever to provide their communities with this additional information.
Highlights included in this year’s report are fourth grade Student Leaders who helped improve their school and spread school spirit with school-wide initiatives, including a vertical aeroponic garden; Jr High Track & Field State Qualifiers; and a generous donation that brought a special outdoor Prom to madeira High School.
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.
The entire Quality Profile with interactive links can be found at 2020-2021 Quality Profile. Postcards were mailed to all Madeira residents with a QR code to the QP, and copies will be mailed to residents who call 924-3707.
