That's right, according to Ohio Department of Education data.1
For this, the board gave the superintendent a bonus; a superintendent who is likely the highest compensated superintendent in Central Ohio. I guess it all makes sense: the board doesn't expect much, and the superintendent doesn't deliver much. Low expectations and the students suffer.
Of course, the district has a different spin to tell its community. In fact, ThisWeek Olentangy bought the spin and cried the headline, "Olentangy 3rd-graders exceed state minimums."
Keep in mind that all the money -- in the form of salaries and other hidden compensation -- has produced no improved results. To be ranked 91st in the state and the superintendent is proud.
