Watch Dr. Gail Kist-Kline, Mason City Schools Superintendent, introduce an overview of the district's Quality Profile video
In September, Mason City Schools released its third Quality Profile
. The Quality Profile helps characterize the overall educational value of public education beyond standardized testing. This year's report highlights six key areas: Academics, Finances, Innovation, Learning Environments, Global Awareness and the Whole Child.
"Our schools are great because of the support of our residents, the dedication of our staff, the hard work of our students and the amazing partnerships from our parents and community partners. We are continuing to grow this greatness together and want to share our progress and goals for the future with you."
Over the next several weeks, the Mason City School District will release a series of videos that highlight each section - and our district's commitment to Growing Greatness Together.
About the Quality Profile
In 2012, 10 Southwest Ohio districts – Forest Hills, Indian Hill, Loveland, Madeira, Mariemont, Mason, Milford, Oak Hills, Sycamore and Wyoming – surveyed residents to determine factors they value in their child’s education that were not represented on the state report card. The result is a collaborative report that shares an expanded story of each participating school district.
The Quality Profile is now supported by the Alliance for High Quality Education, an educational consortium that works to improve educational opportunities for students and represent member districts on matters of educational policy and funding.
