Tiffin School Community,
Overall grades are appearing on the report cards for the first time.  Tiffin City Schools' overall district grade on the 2018 report card is a "B."  Among the 608 public school districts in Ohio, 28 districts, or 4.6%, earned an "A.”  Tiffin is one of the 191 school districts, or 31%, that earned a "B."  
 
The overall grade is calculated by using results in six components: Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Improving At-Risk K-3 Readers, Graduation Rate and Prepared for Success. 
 
Many achievements are evident in Tiffin’s 2018 report card.   Our performance in many areas ranks high in comparison to other like-districts.  While Tiffin is pleased with the many positives on the report card, we also acknowledge those categories on the report card that represent opportunities for development.  We will continue to maintain areas of academic excellence while meticulously addressing those improvement opportunities.  
 
Furthermore, while Tiffin is proud of its success on Ohio's report card, the report card is not our only measure of success.  There are numerous examples of excellence and commitment to students throughout our District, that when coupled with our achievement, serve as evidence of the good being done for our students and families.  In essence, Tiffin works hard everyday to create a learning environment that is safe, nurturing and educates the whole child.  All of our successes are a testament to the hard work of our students and staff, and are achieved with the help of a strong and supportive community. Our staff is honored to serve this community and this is a report card of which the entire Tiffin educational community can be proud.  
 
All the Best,
Gary Barber, Superintendent
