The Relationship between Components of the Ohio Local School District Report Card and the Outcome of a School Tax Levy
Wheatley, Vicki Ann
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Ashland University
The relationship between components of the local school district report card, school district typology, and the outcome of public school tax levy requests were examined in this study. A correlation research design was used to measure the relationship between the independent variables (performance index, average yearly progress, value added, economically disadvantaged, school district typology, and designation) and the dependent variable, the outcome of a school district tax levy request. Preexisting data obtained from the Ohio Department of Education's interactive local report card site and Ohio Secretary of State's election result site from the November 2011 General Election were analyzed to answer two research questions: is there a relationship between the outcome of public school district tax levy requests and components of the Local School District Report Card and is there a relationship between the outcome of a public school district tax levy requests and school district typology? A Pearson correlation with an alpha level of 0.05 was used to determine the significance and direction of the relationship between the variables. The study results suggest that components from the local school district report cards and school district typology do not serve as a good predictor of school district tax levy passage.
