The last Ohio State Tests will be occurring for grades 3-6 during May 1st - 5th.
Please be mindful of these dates and as always, encourage your children to have a good night sleep prior to, eat a healthy breakfast, and to do their best.
Also, we are asking for NO volunteers during these 2 State Testing weeks. Furthermore, before school Band, Orchestra, & Chorus for these two State Testing weeks will be cancelled.
All tests will be taken electronically through the Ohio State Test Portal. Each test is administered in two parts. Elementary students will take only one part per day.
In order for students to become familiar with this testing procedure, the state has provided practice resources for parents and students.
Two short tutorials are available to teach navigation skills on the testing site as well as how to use the embedded testing tools.
Teachers will be introducing these tutorials with students in the classroom but parents can try them at home by going to http://oh.portal.airast.org/ocba/students-and-families.
If you have any questions about state testing please contact your child's teacher or Mr. Hamilton.
