Parents and Community Members 

As many of you may be aware Ohio, along with 40 other states, adopted what are generally known as the Common Core Standards in English and Mathematics.  Ohio has also adopted new learning standards for Science and Social Studies.  To go along with these new standards, the State of Ohio and many other states adopted new assessments to measure student achievement.  After months of preparation, we are set to begin testing students using what are known as the PARCC( Partnership for Assessment of  Readiness for College and Careers) assessments in English and Mathematics.   
 
Beginning Monday Feb. 16 we will begin testing students in grades 3-6 (Tuesday Feb 17, for students in grades 7-9) in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Students in grades 7-9 will be taking their tests online using computers. Students in grades 3-6 will take their tests the traditional way using paper and pencil.   
 
There are two parts to the new tests.  The first is known as a Performance Based Assessment and the second, which will be given in April, is known as an End of Year exam.  The scores for the two parts will be combined and students will receive a single rating. Parents will recognize the scoring, as the labels, Accelerated, Accomplished, Proficient or Basic will be still be used. 
 
If you have a child in grades 3-9, they will be having a series of testing sessions over the next couple of  weeks.   Each testing session will last approximately 90 minutes.   English will have three sessions while Math has two.  These will be spread out over several days. We hope you will make sure your child has a good breakfast and that they get plenty of rest.    
 
Once this round of testing is completed, there will be additional testing for grades 4,6, and 8 in Science and/or Social Studies. These tests were developed by the State of Ohio and are not part of the PARCC assessments.    High School School students in either American History (10th grade) or  Political Economic Studies (11th or 12 grade) will have a first round of testing in March and End of Year exams in May for these subject areas.  
 
Finally, this year's 10th grade students will be the last group to take the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) which will be given the week of March 16.  In case you were wondering, the OAA's (Ohio Achievement Assessments) have been discontinued.    The only exception is 3rd grade, which will still take the OAA 3rd grade Reading test this spring.   
 
Parents of students in grades 7 through 9,  should watch for a letter from my office concerning an important parent meeting we will be having the first part of March.   We will be explaining to all parents and students the new required testing and the new graduation requirements.  I strongly urge all parents in these grades to consider attending this important meeting.  More information on the time and date will be sent to you in the next couple of weeks.  
 
If you are like me, all these changes makes your head spin.  We know and understand how confusing all of this is.  Whether we agree with all the changes or not,  we clearly understand one important fact; Young people and their parents are on the threshold of many significant changes to the requirements and opportunities they will be provided during their high school careers.   We will do our best to try and help parents understand these new requirements.   If at any time you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me or Mr. Heath Huffman.   
 
Sincerely, 
 
Mark Willeke
Cory-Rawson High School Principal
