Director - Report Card Project, Office of Information Technology, ODE
Marianne Mottley began her career more than 33 years ago as a legislative aide in the Ohio Senate. During her more than 18-year tenure in the legislature, she served as legislative aide to three state senators, all of whom were policy leaders in the education arena.
15 years ago, Marianne transitioned to the Office of Accountability at the Ohio Department of Education, serving first as a policy aide, then as assistant director and then as director. During that time, she worked on numerous changes to the report card including working to implement the version used today. Almost five years ago she assumed a newly created position called “Director of the Report Card Project.” In that role she not only directs the accountability policies and production of the report cards themselves, but also directs a lot of the work that comes after the report cards are released such as helping the program offices with data used for school improvement or helping stakeholders use data to drive instructional programming decisions.
