The 2020-21 Fordham Sponsorship Annual Report provides insight into our sponsorship work during the last school year, one of the most challenging imaginable for schools, students, and families. As expected, student outcomes on 2020-21 state assessments were lower across all schools last year, but other traditional academic outcome data were once again not reported by the State of Ohio due to the Covid pandemic. We also provide as much non-academic data as we can to fully express the vital work to serve students which is ongoing in our portfolio of schools.
The report also highlights the excellent work of our policy and research colleagues at the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, and includes summaries of some of our most impactful research during the past year.
We are grateful to have the opportunity to support the boards, school leaders, and staff members in each of our sponsored schools, and we extend our deep thanks to them for their steadfast dedication to their students and families.
