More than 95 percent of affected third-graders met Ohio’s new reading test standards last year, qualifying them to be promoted to fourth grade this year, according to full school district data released Wednesday afternoon by the Ohio Department of Education.
ODE officials said the 95.8 percent passage rate is a significant increase from the previous year’s 88.2 percent level. In the Greater Dayton area, 45 of 52 public school districts exceeded the 95.8 percent state passage rate. The results are tied to Ohio’s Third Grade Reading Guarantee program.
“We still have work to do, but we can see that the guarantee has been effective,” said Richard Ross, state school superintendent. “I’m proud that our teachers, parents, students and communities worked harder than ever to bring struggling readers up to speed. While these are great results, we need to continue to focus on the approximately 5,000 boys and girls who didn’t meet the threshold last year.”
Locally, 21 mostly smaller school districts saw every nonexempt student meet the state reading standard. The largest districts in that group were Troy, Vandalia-Butler, Tipp City and Oakwood. Another 22 districts, including many larger suburbs — Springboro, Miamisburg, Northmont, Kettering, Beavercreek, Centerville and Xenia – had more than 98 percent of affected students meet the reading test standard.
The Third Grade Reading Guarantee, which took effect last year, requires Ohio schools to provide intervention for struggling readers starting in kindergarten. Students who are still behind by the end of their third-grade year, as measured on state tests, must remain in third grade, at least in reading class, to improve those skills.
Just over five percent of students statewide were exempt from being retained – certain special education students, English as a Second Language students, and those who had been held back a grade previously.
Three local districts had less than 90 percent of nonexempt students pass the reading test, putting them in the bottom 4 percent of school districts statewide – Dayton (83.6 percent passage), Northridge (85.7) and Trotwood-Madison (86.2).
Among Montgomery County charter schools, DECA Prep and Horizon Science Academy-Dayton were the highest performers, with more than 96 percent of their nonexempt students meeting the state reading standard. Pathway School of Discovery and Miami Valley Academies each saw more than 92 percent of their students pass.
Five charter schools scored below all local public school districts, according to the state-released data – Emerson Academy (79.2 percent passage), STEAM Academy (70.0), Klepinger Community School (67.3), CityDay Community School (50.0) and Dayton Leadership Academies (47.6).

MIAMI TWP. — A Lyft driver who found a cell phone loaded with child pornography in his vehicle after dropping off a client helped police make an arrest, according to court documents.
Marvin Hemphill, 27, of Valdosta, Georgia, was arrested Jan. 6 at the Staybridge Suites at Austin Landing and was indicted Wednesday on 24 charges connected to child pornography, according to court records.
According to court documents, Hemphill left his cell phone in the Lyft driver’s vehicle after receiving a ride from a Beavercreek restaurant where he worked.
The driver looked at the phone, attempting to determine the owner, and noticed the child pornography and alerted officers, court documents showed.
Police were able to link the phone to Hemphill, who allowed police to search it, and multiple child porn videos were found, the documents read.
Hemphill admitted to police that he knew he had the child porn on the phone and knew the people in the videos were juveniles, court records showed.

— If you love Chicken Nuggets, this job will have you clucking in anticipation every day.
“Just like a good steak, this opportunity is rare,” the British-based B&M budget retailer posted to its website. The job opening is for a “Chicken Nugget Connoisseur,” and the candidate who gets the job will receive a 25-pound voucher every month to spend on “fresh and frozen food” in their local B&M store. The job requires the nugget eater to share feedback with B&M.
“You’ll want to take a bite out of this,” B&M wrote on its website.
So, what kind of job experience does one need for this job?
In its job posting, B&M offers some specific clues:
Getting the 20 share box of nuggets from McDonald's and keeping them all for yourself;
Being the first in the office kitchen whenever someone says “there’s cake”;
That time you tripped and fell at a buffet and saved the plate before yourself;
Going to an event or party because there is free food;
You value the importance of a fish finger sandwich in life;
You can conduct a Powerpoint presentation on the reasoning behind curly fries being nicer than chips;
If you believe you qualify, wing it and apply.
