Remediation Dashboard Stark's Urban Districts Show a Double-Digit 
Drop in Math Remediation

The 2015 Ohio Remediation Report, a requirement of the Ohio Revised Code,[1] requires that the Chancellor of the Department of Higher Education and the Superintendent of Public Instruction publish a yearly review of the data on the need for remediation in Ohio's public colleges and universities.[2]
 
The report, published late in December, looks at remediation rates for students entering the 2014-15 academic year. The good news is that remediation rates have been dropping statewide. In Ohio, the long and most vexing remediation subject, math, fell by 4%. It fell by even larger margins in Stark County where twelve districts saw a drop of 10% or better - including all three of Stark's urban districts. Double-digit reductions were achieved in Alliance, Canton City, Canton Local, Jackson, Lake, Louisville, Massillon, Minerva, Northwest, Osnaburg, Plain and Sandy Valley.

While serving as a measure of college readiness, the state's published remediation rates only refer to those students who attend public institutions. Rates are not charted for students attending Ohio's private colleges and universities or those who go out of state.
