FINAL EXAM SCHEDULE
Final exams will be held May 22, 26, 27, 28. We will be running a regular bell schedule during our exam week. Each class will meet during its regular period. A list of when subjects will hold their exams is listed below (each exam will be split into 2 days). There may be some variation in how teachers will assess their students. Teachers will discuss this accordingly. May 29 will be reserved for make-up exams only. If your child completes all assessments/projects by May 28, they are not required to attend school on May 29.
Tests and assessments . . . students have been taking them in American schools for generations. Exams are part of our school culture; we test students to see what they know, where they need to improve, and if our instructional practices are reaching the students. I don’t know an educator who believes we should get rid of all assessments. We must have accountability in our schools.
The recent focus on assessments in Ohio has garnered a great deal of media attention. Teachers, parents, and students have expressed serious concerns about the amount of testing we are doing in our public schools. There is legislation pending to reduce the time spent on state assessments; our legislators have heard us and are considering a myriad of options. Read More…
