Ohio changes student tracking for federal money

By STEPHEN MAJORS, Associated Press Writer

COLUMBUS, Dec. 25, 2009 (AP): Ohio lawmakers have approved a new policy that will enable the state to track student progress from kindergarten through college.

The change, tucked into a physical education requirements bill passed last week, improves Ohio's application for more federal education stimulus money.

President Barack Obama's administration has dangled $4.4 billion before states if they make changes to their education systems consistent with Obama's goals for reform.

Ohio would be eligible to receive up to $400 million of the funds. But it's competing with other states also making changes, and only some—perhaps 10 to 20—will get the funds.

Ohio's change connects student data through high school with data from college, which will help the state evaluate how well students are prepared.
