With new Ohio academic standards in place and next generation testing requirements on the horizon for second semester, we wanted to provide you with a schedule of revised testing dates so you can plan accordingly. Please be sure to use this schedule as a guide when making travel plans or scheduling appointments during the school day. Please note that this schedule is different from the original schedule published in the district calendar. Although the Ohio Department of Education and state legislature are still considering changes to the requirements, we are moving forward with this schedule. If anything specific changes related to the testing schedule, we will communicate those changes to you right away.

The testing schedule is for the new state assessments that align to the learning standards in the core content areas of English/Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies.
