I want to make you aware of the Ohio Department of Education’s web site: (http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Testing). Clicking on the Ohio’s State Test Portal
will provide you with practice tests and test information for you and your child.
Also, students can go to www.westg.org and log on to our high school website. On the front page of our site, students can click on this link: Student End-of Course Review
. This link will take you to a test review site.
Students who still need to pass prior end-of-course exams are currently working with staff members during advisory period. All remediation teachers have provided students with reference material and support learning opportunities to assist with their test retakes. Test retakes will be offered to students during the subject area testing times.
To help your child give his/her best effort, please make sure he/she gets a good night’s sleep the night before the actual test and eats breakfast!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have or for any additional information. You can also contact your child’s guidance counselor.
