With new graduation testing and end-of-course requirements on the horizon, Solon High School is providing families with a tentative schedule of testing dates so they can plan accordingly. Families should use this schedule as a guide when making travel plans or scheduling appointments during the school day. Although the state Department of Education and legislature are still making changes to the requirements, Solon High School is moving forward with this schedule. If anything specific changes related to high school testing, the high school will communicate those changes right away.
Sophomores, juniors and seniors (the classes of 2015-2017) follow the current pathways to graduation and their graduation test requirements are the Ohio Graduation Tests (Reading, Writing, Math, Science and Social Studies). Sophomores will take the OGT the week of March 16-20.
Freshmen (the class of 2018) are the first students who will be required to follow the new pathways to graduation.
