New Reassessment Policy
Our goal at OHS is to ensure every student is college or career ready when they
graduate. We want to strive for every student to be proficient learners so they will be
prepared for a global society.
For our students to be competitive in today's workforce they must be critical thinkers, collaborative, creative, have citizenship skills and be able to effectively communicate. Our students need to show they are competent in these skills to meet the challenges that they will face in the future. The teachers and I want to help develop these skills so our students will be successful when they graduate from OHS.
The new reassessment policy is a way we feel as a staff can better service our students to meet the skills they will need to be successful. Grading will now be subdivided into two parts: Competencies and Assessments.
Competencies will be based on students being able to demonstrate their proficiency in their daily learning (ex. daily objectives, classwork, homework, showing understanding of the material). Daily learning will help develop their citizenship, ability to work collaboratively, communicate effectively, be creative, and become critical thinkers. With our students working to be proficient on these competencies it will show higher success when it comes to their assessments.
Our students will be assessed through a variety of ways: projects, labs, essays, long term assignments, or traditional tests. We want to know our students are becoming competent in their learning.
With the new policy if a student scores below an 80% on what is categorized as an assessment in SIS then they will qualify for reassessment. Again, our goal at OHS is to ensure every student is college or career ready when they graduate. We want to strive for every student to be proficient learners so they will be prepared for a global society.
A full version of the 7 -8 and 9-12 grade reassessment policy and form can be found on the High School Website or in resources on the school district app.
