Ohio State Tests will Begin in April
Ohio State Tests will begin in April.  Teachers and students have been working and learning all year and are ready to show how much they have grown in their knowledge and skills.  We are excited to see how much our students have achieved!
Here are some tips for parents to help prepare students for their Ohio State Tests:
  • Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep and eats a healthy breakfast!
  • Make sure your child is prepared- remind them that they will do great on these tests!
  • Remain Positive- staying calm and positive will help your child stay calm and positive.  It is normal to be nervous when testing,  and your calm approach can help your child be at their most ready.  
 Please visit the Ohio Department of Education for more information on Ohio State Testing.

 Please remember that Piqua High School will test in the morning and will run a 2-Hour Delay Schedule.  However, there will be NO extra bus routes for students who are not taking an Ohio State State Test.  If students are not testing that day and don't have a ride to school then they will need to come on their normal bus time and wait in the cafeteria. Again, there is not special and/or extra busing for this years testing. If a student is not testing and wants to take advantage of the 9:35am delayed start, they need their own transportation!
