The rating is the best a district can achieve in the state's grading system
Mayfield Schools had little, if any, room for improvement during the 2011-2012 school year. The district received the highest possible grade — Excellent with Distinction — on its Ohio Department of Education report card for last year. ODE posted cards on Wednesday for 610 districts across the state on its website. Mayfield met 23 of 26 of the state's indicators.

The state Board of Education is holding off on the release of the report cards until an investigation is complete.
The release of Ohio’s school report cards will continue to be delayed while the state auditor investigates whether some districts manipulated attendance data. The state Board of Education on Tuesday decided to release some of the information to the public around the end of September, Ohio Department of Education Associate Director of Communications John Charlton said in an email. The data will not include attendance rates, performance index or overall ratings, and the board has not set a date to release the full report cards at this time. That means that Mayfield Heights parents won’t know if their local school is rated as “Excellent,” “Effective," "Continuous Improvement" or the like until much later in the school year.
