OVS High School Newsletter

We are so glad you are here!

Testing Info.

esting season is officially over! Great work everyone! It was truly a team effort and you all pulled together to make sure kids who wanted to test were able to. Here is how we are getting scores to families.


ACT: The families get the ACT scores via MyACT.org. I helped all kids sign up for this service and I've heard they are getting their scores without issues. We do not get their scores as we are a program (not recognized by ACT). Research will pull together our scores for us.


PreACT: They were delivered Thursday. We will send home the report with the report cards. I will also send an email to all families with instructions on how to read the PreACT report. We will go through this training next school year with our student data. I will be working to get all scores of students who come to us.


MAP: We are printing the MAP Progress Report for all students who tested. These will be sent home with the report card along with a guide on how to read the report and the MAP scores brochure.

Last Day to Submit Work (K-11th grade)

The last day for students to turn in quarter 4/semester 2 work will be Monday, May 24th at midnight 11:59 PM. If questions/concerns arise, please make sure you and your learner are regularly communicating with your teachers through these last few weeks.
