It’s report card time, but this time it’s not for the students its for the schools. In the Zanesville City school district the Ohio Department of Education says the district rated lower than this time last year. The district went from continuous improvement to academic watch. Director of Instruction, Kathy Mccray says the district is looking at the data and seeing where the gains have been and where the school district needs improvement.
