Scheduling 2019-2020 Information

All schedule change requests must be emailed to:

All Students - Must be taking 5 credits for the entire 2017-2018 school year to be considered a full-time student. Please count your credits and make requests to add courses if you do not have enough credits.
*Students are only allowed a maximum of 2 study hall periods each semester. If you are an athlete, check to make sure you are scheduled for a minimum of 2 ½ credits EACH semester.

Athletic Eligibility - Athletes! Please be sure to count your credits for each semester! You should have scheduled at least 2.5 credits each semester. Remember Phys.Ed. and Physical Conditioning are only worth .25 credits (per course). Also, if you have a difficult course, it is wise to schedule more courses the same semester as the difficult course to buffer in case you struggle in the difficult course. For athletic eligibility, students must take and pass 2.5 credits the preceding quarter to the athletic season and have a 1.0 GPA. If you have questions about athletic eligibility, please ask Mr. Barry Dutt - Athletic Director (740-725-5800). If you have questions about counting credits, please ask Mrs. LaBarge or Mrs. Kanagy - School Counselors (740-725-5802).

Ohio's State Testing

Ohio's State Testing Dates

Updated testing information was sent home last week, September 11-12, 2019 with your student. Make sure your student has passed these along.
For testing we will be operating on a two hour delayed testing schedule on December 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 10. 
      It is imperative that all students testing arrive on time and report to the designated room listed on their letter. Letters were mailed out November 17 and reminder notes will be given to the student at school on Friday, November 30.  Your child’s attendance during the testing time(s) is/are required. They are to report at the regular time (7:50 start time) on the date(s) they are testing. If your student does not report during their required assessment time it will be considered an absence. 
      Buses will operate at the regular time, if the bus is the only means of transportation for your child they can ride the bus to school and a study area will be available to them. 
      Please remember that your child must accumulate a total of 18 points on these State Assessments, within the seven subject areas which are English 9, English 10, American History, American Government, Algebra I, Geometry, and Biology/Physical Science, in order to meet graduation requirements. Students can score one to five points on each test. Within the 18 points a student must earn 4 points in English, 4 points in math, and 6 points in the areas of science and social studies. Students can earn up to 35 points total. This is a graduation requirement.
