Testing Blunder

On April 18th, 2018, the statewide online testing system went down for the entire day. As a result, there have been some changes to the testing schedule. Please pay close attention to the details below to ensure your student arrives and departs at the appropriate time each day. For more information on the testing site outage, please refer to the Ohio State depart of Education website here: http://oh.portal.airast.org/ost.stml

 

Report Cards and Teacher Availability

On Tuesday, April 17th, 2018, all students received a copy of their 4th quarter report card. Additionally, copies of those report cards were place in the mail and sent to your homes. If you did not receive a copy of your child’s report card, please check with your student.

 

Appointment Only CLOSED Parent Teacher Conferences

On Wednesday, April 25th, 2018 students will be dismissed at 1pm. From 2pm – 5pm there will be a parent teacher conference session by appointment only. Administrators have requested conferences with parents who have been unable to attend conferences throughout the year by appointment only. If you are not scheduled to attend a conference, but would still like information about your student, we will be holding drop in dates in throughout the month of May. Please pay attention to the weekly notes for future dates, and feel free to reach out to your site’s secretary if you would like to schedule something.

 

3 Tips for Parents to Teach Teens to Take Academic Responsibility

Midway through the year, some high schoolers may have disappointing grades, but are reluctant to take ownership of their performance. Some teens are not emotionally mature enough for the independence many adolescents strive for, says John Kelly, a school psychologist at Commack High School in New York. They struggle to take responsibility for their studies. "It's hard for students to see that big picture. They are in the here and now," says Rob Lundien, a school counselor at Staley High School in North Kansas City, Missouri. But it can be a fine line for parents to walk when teaching academic responsibility, says Kelly. The following tips can help parents teach their children to be responsible for themselves, and determine when and how it's appropriate for them to step in to help.

  • Be proactive: Teens today struggle to connect what they are learning in school today to life after high school, says Colleen Tortorella, a school counselor at Gateway High School in Monroeville, Pennsylvania. Knowing that their education is valuable can help them take ownership of their studies, she says. Parents can do this by making a point to talk with teachers early on and stressing the importance of education at home, she says.

  • Intervene when warning signs appear: Poor organizational and time-management skills, falling grades, missing assignments and displays of anger and frustration are all signs a student is struggling and that a parent should step in and help, says Kelly.

  • Motivate and be supportive: Parents should encourage their teen to reach out for help, but when teens do seek assistance, parents should offer their child guidance – don't do the work for them, says Kelly.
