PARCC Testing
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a state test developed to measure student achievement in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics based on the learning standards contained in the Common Core State Standards for grades 3-8 and high school.  The first operational administration of PARCC is scheduled for the 2014/2015 school year.

This year we will be participating in the PARCC field test. Your child may be tested on April 4th through April 10th during their Algebra I period one class with Mrs. Bruenig, or Mrs. Fedor period 4, or in their English 10 class with Mrs. Delmonico period four, or Mrs. Laboda’s period one class; or in Advanced English 10 with Mrs. Opel period four, or Mrs. Matthews period three. We ask that students take their time and do their best on this assessment. There won’t be anything for them to study or to use to prepare. The field test is used to give the test makers information about the questions that they will use next year. In addition, our students are being exposed to what will be the future testing protocols of the state. This opportunity will provide them with a first look into the upcoming amendments in state testing.
 
Calamity Day Make-up Plan
Amherst Schools will be making up four calamity days on April 21, June 2, June 3, and June 4. Ohio legislation exempts the senior class from make-up days that occur AFTER their graduation date. Commencement will occur as scheduled. Seniors must report on April 21. Please select the link for the revised 2013-2014 school calendar as approved by the Board of Education. Thank you for your flexibility!
