Dear Parents or Guardians,
The week of March 10-14 has been designated as Ohio Graduation Test (aka OGT) week by the state of Ohio. Students are required to take ALL five parts of the Ohio Graduation Test: Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. If a student misses any portion of the Ohio Graduation Test, March 17-21 is the designated make-up week.
Wynford High School realizes the importance of the OGT's and is implementing a 2 hour delay start for the High School students only, in grades 9, 11, and 12 during the week of March 11-15. Any freshmen that is receiving a D or F is expected to be at Wynford at normal time for the week with remediation by the subject specific teacher. An example is a student having a "D" in Science; Mr. Rowlinson will be available for two hours for four days out of the five days from 7:30 AM-9:30 AM to assist that student. Wynford busses WILL RUN at regular times for students in grades 7-12 including Pioneer students. Sophomores, any Junior or Senior re-takes, and Pioneer students will need to arrive at school before the regular start time of 7:30 AM.
Any high school student that rides the bus will report to the auditorium for study hall. All 7th and 8th graders will report to the jr. high for OAA prep during the entire week.
Test taking strategies and tips

· Get plenty of rest (7-9 hours)

If we are on a weather delay the entire district will be on a 2 hour delay and you will receive the usual "Connect Ed" call from Mr. Mohr.
