High School/Junior High School

March 12, 2015

Dear Parents or Guardians,

The week of March 16-20 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 23-27 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 16-20. Any freshmen that is receiving a D or F is expected to be at Wynford at normal time for the week with remediation provided by a group of teachers in the cafeteria daily. Once they have all of there grades up, they are free to stay at home during the 2 hour delay start time, but only at that point. If a student chooses not to come, their grade will be as indicated with no chance of improving and a “Tardy” to school will be given. All of these students are expected to be here on time and a letter has been sent home by our guidance department on March 13, 2015.

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 expanded instruction time. A rotation of classes has been devised so all students will have all of their core classes at this point.

Test taking strategies and tips

  • Multiple number 2 pencils (not mechanical pencils)
  • Get plenty of rest (7-9 hours)
  • Eat a good breakfast
  • Drink plenty of water the night before
  • Take your time on the test
  • Read the question carefully
  • Double check all of your work
  • 2 point question, means they are looking for 2 valid points to be made
  • 4 point question, means they are looking for 4 valid points to be made

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.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 419-562-7828.
