The Ohio Department of Education says Cleveland is among seven school districts that were found to have improperly reported attendance data.
The ODE referred the cases Monday for possible professional sanctions against individual educators or licensed staff. Punishment could range from suspension to license revocation.
“I do not believe any of this was intentional. It was an issue of record keeping, which we have corrected, but will continue to work with state officials,” says Cleveland CEO Eric Gordon.
Cleveland did have the largest number of students improperly withdrawn in the 2010-2011 school year. Even so, the district still received a D on the state report card.
The allegations have been that the district withdrew students who missed a lot of school and performed poorly to boost test scores.
