Welcome to the Madison High School Website. As we return to school from Winter Break, I would like to take a moment to make you aware of the upcoming spring state testing schedule. All students must meet one of two state testing graduation requirements depending on the number of years in which he/she has attended high school. The graduation requirement for those students who are in their 1st or 2nd year of high school (generally 9th and 10th graders) includes the online End of Course Exams (EOCs). The requirement for those students who are in their 3rd or more year of high school (generally juniors and seniors) includes the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT). For more detailed information on the graduation requirements, please see the following page on the Ohio Department of Education website.
For those students who still need to pass one or more parts of the OGT, those tests will be given during the week of March 14-18 with makeups taking place the following week, March 21-24. During both weeks we will follow our normal bell schedule and arrival time for all students.
The EOCs will be administered starting on April 11th with the English 9 EOC and concluding on April 19th with the Social Studies 3 EOC. EOC testing will take place from 8-11 AM. If a student is enrolled in the course that is testing on that particular day, the student maintains his/her normal daily arrival at school. If a student is not enrolled in the course that is testing on that particular day, the student is welcome to arrive at his/her normal time, but does not need to arrive at school until 11:00 AM. Keep in mind that the buses will only be running at their normal times. There will be no busing for the 11:00 AM arrival time.
We look forward to working with our students to prepare them to be very successful on the State Standardized Tests. Our teachers are working diligently to prepare them for these tests, but more importantly for their futures as they prepare to enter college, the workforce, or the military upon graduation. As a parent, we ask you to please assist us by communicating the importance of these tests with your child and reinforcing the importance of a good night’s rest, breakfast, and full attendance during the testing periods. Please join us in taking great pride in the success of all Madison students!
