Change of Dates for Ohio Achievement Assessments for Solon Students in Grades 3-8
Thursday, February 27, 2014

Given the unseasonably harsh winter and accompanying unusual number of calamity days school districts around Ohio have been forced to use this year, the Ohio Department of Education is extending the testing window for Ohio Achievement Assessments by one week. The Solon Schools are taking advantage of this permitted flexibility and will adjust our testing schedule by one week.

Solon students in grades 3-8 will now take Ohio Achievement Assessments the week of May 5. This schedule change will benefit students as it will provide a week of additional instruction.

The new schedule is as follows:
Tuesday, May 6: Grade 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 – OAA Reading
Wednesday, May 7: Grade 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 – OAA Math
Thursday, May 8: Grade 5, 8 – OAA Science

Please check your calendars now to see if you have any doctor, orthodontist or other appointments scheduled during the week of May 5. We ask that you reschedule those appointments if they are during the school day and avoid any other unnecessary absences that week.
