Rocket Families,

Beginning on April 13, our students will be taking Ohio’s AIR and End of Course State Tests. All tests will be administered online using the state’s secure browser on our Chromebooks. The testing schedule for our students is as follows:

Subject Area Test Date
ELA ELA Gr. 7, ELA Gr. 8, ELA II
Parts 1 & 2
Tuesday, April 13
Math Math Gr. 7, Math Gr. 8, Algebra I, & Geometry
Parts 1 & 2
Wednesday, April 14
Science Science Gr. 8 & Biology
Parts 1 & 2
Thursday, April 15
Social Studies American History & Government
Parts 1 & 2
Friday, April 16

It is important that students make all efforts to be at school on each testing day; however, there will be make-up dates after testing if needed.

Like previous years, Berne Union High School will operate on a unique schedule during testing. Only students who have a test will be required to attend school for that day. This means that if your child does not have to take a social studies assessment, he or she is not required to come to school on Friday, April 16. This only applies to the high school students. All elementary students are required to attend school each day of testing regardless of whether they test or not.

Please ensure your child’s Chromebook is in working order prior to testing. If there is something wrong with the Chromebook, such as a missing key, a cracked screen, or the computer freezes frequently, please have your child see Mr. McManis with any concerns as soon as possible.

On test days, your child will need to bring his or her Chromebook fully charged, sharpened pencils, headphones, and a mouse if he/she would like to use one.

Together we will cheer our students on for success. We are excited about this opportunity for students to show how much they know, and we are all confident that they will shine brightly in their performance. Feel free to contact either the high school office or Maria Call at callm@buschools.com if you have any additional questions.

With Rocket pride,

Maria Call- Curriculum Director and Testing Coordinator
