Bucyrus City


The Bucyrus City school district in Ohio consists of three schools: Bucyrus Elementary School, Bucyrus Secondary School (high school), and Bucyrus Middle School. The district faces several challenges, including consistently low performance across all three schools, a lack of racial diversity, high rates of poverty and chronic absenteeism, and potential imbalances in resource allocation.

Bucyrus Elementary School is the largest in the district with 544 students, 89.89% of whom are white. The school consistently ranks in the bottom half of Ohio elementary schools and has relatively low proficiency rates on state tests, especially in Math and English Language Arts. The school also has a high chronic absenteeism rate of 17.2% and a high percentage (72.06%) of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. In contrast, Bucyrus Secondary School has a smaller enrollment of 290 students but an even higher percentage of white students (90.34%) and an extremely high rate (98.97%) of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

The Bucyrus Middle School has 272 students and a similar racial makeup to the other schools, with 90.07% white students. The middle school is ranked in the middle third of Ohio middle schools, but still has relatively low proficiency rates on state tests, especially in Math, and a high chronic absenteeism rate of 28.4%. Overall, the data suggests that the Bucyrus City school district faces significant challenges in improving academic performance, addressing attendance and poverty issues, and ensuring equitable distribution of resources across its schools.
