Carrollton High School on “delayed start” next week to accommodate OGT testing

FPS staff report

The Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) will be administered to all sophomores and a “practice” OGT to all freshmen at Carrollton High School (CHS) during the week of March 11-15.

To accomplish this mandatory testing, CHS will operate on a “delayed start” next week. Freshmen and sophomores will report at the normal time as they will be taking the required tests from 7:30 to 9:45 a.m. Juniors and seniors who have passed all five sections of the OGT do not have to report to school until 9:45 a.m. that week.

The reason for the “practice” test is to gather information data from the freshman class and also to familiarize them with the testing process, according to CHS Principal David Davis.

Students are required to pass all five areas of the OGT, including writing, reading, mathematics, social studies and science.

The “delayed start” schedule for the week of March 11-15 is as follows:
- All bus schedules will remain the same;

- Freshmen and sophomores will report at the normal time as they will be taking the required tests from 7:30 to 9:45 a.m.;

- Juniors and seniors who have passed all sections of the OGT are to report to school at 9:45 a.m.;

- Juniors and seniors who still need to pass one or more areas of the OGT will report to school at 7:15 a.m. on the day (s) that area is tested;

- If juniors or seniors have to ride the bus to school, they will be picked up at their normal time and will be assigned an area at the school to wait until school starts at 9:45 a.m.;

- Lunch times will not change.

Class schedules for the week were given to each high school student and mailed home to every parent. Anyone having questions should call the high school office at 330-627-2134.
