As the school year enters the final academic quarter, high school students are faced with end of course exams – the state’s replacement to the old Ohio Graduation Test. Students that are enrolled in specific courses must take a standardized end of course exam (AIR test) to demonstrate their knowledge. For this reason, we will be testing students on the following dates below. If your students are not enrolled in the courses that are being tested on a given day (4/5, 4/12 & 4/21), then they may sleep late that day and arrive to school at 11:15. On those days, school will begin at 11:20 and conclude at the regular time, 2:25. Students will be able to eat lunch at school and take the bus home at the regular time. Again, if a student is not testing on April 5, 12, and 21 they do not report to school until 11:20.
Tuesday April 5, 2016: 9th graders taking English
10th graders taking English
Everyone else reports at 11:15 (5th, 1st 2nd)
Tuesday April 12, 2016: 9th and 10th graders taking Algebra I
9th and 10th graders taking Geometry
Everyone else reports at 11:15 (5th, 3rd, 4th)
Thursday April 21, 2016: Any student taking American History
Any student taking Government
Everyone else reports at 11:15 (5th, 6th, 7th)
A small number of students will take a science test (Biology or Physical Science) on April 26. Because this is a small number of students, we will NOT have a late start that day. All students must report to school at the regular 7:25 time on April 26.
Tuesday April 26, 2016: NORMAL SCHEDULE
9th graders taking Biology will take the biology exam
10th graders who scored a 1 or 2 on last year’s Phys. Science exam
If you have any questions about this schedule or how it affects your student, please ask them first. They should know when or if they have to take a test. If they do not, please email or call a principal or counselor at the high school.
It is a great time to be a Rocket!
