Typology of Ohio Public Districts

In 1996, ODE created a classification system making it easier to compare similar districts referred to as the typology of Ohio school districts.[5] In 2007, the typology was revised to take advantage of the 2000 census data. With the availability of more recent data from the 2010 census ODE again revised the typology for 2013. [6]  ODE has not revised the typology since 2013. [7]  Consequently, its accuracy is highly suspect. However, the typology provides valuable information.

Of the 1173 districts, 607 (51.7%) had a typology. Of those 607,   209 (37.8%) were rural; 200 (33%) were small town;  123 (20.3%) were Suburban and 53 (9.0%) were Urban.
