The Vandalia-Butler City Schools received an overall performance index of 102.6 in the latest report card released by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE). The district also received a letter grade of A for indicators met under the achievement standards. The district received an A in both the four and five-year graduation rate with 96.6 percent of students in the class of 2013 graduating within four years and 96.8 percent of the class of 2012 graduating in five years. Vandalia-Butler Schools also got an overall Value-Added grade of A reflecting growth in the district’s math and reading performance that far exceeded the state average.
In addition, the Vandalia-Butler School district has joined more than 50 districts from across the state in releasing a Quality Profile. The Quality Profile provides a richer, more instructive look at district programs and accomplishments that are not included in the state report card. The report includes information related to academics, arts, fiscal stewardship, and parent and community involvement. The Quality Profile is sponsored by the Alliance for High Quality Education and can be found on the district’s website at www.vbcsd.com. A print copy can be obtained by calling 415-6400.
