Ohio will soon replace its Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT) with new end-of-course exams that better measure whether students will be ready for college or a position in the workforce.

This year, most Ohio students in grades 3-8 will take a new and different set of state achievement tests that are based on Ohio’s New Learning Standards. Both the standards and new tests reflect higher expectations for what students should know and be able to do in math, English language arts, science and social studies. The new tests also will better measure what students have learned and what they can do with their knowledge.

In grades 3-8 math, the new state tests will replace the Ohio Achievement Assessments (OAA).

On August 18th, we are going to have an OPEN HOUSE  for ALL  high school students.  Open house will be from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm and you may bring your child in at any time during this time frame.  During this time you will have the opportunity to do the following:

Incoming senior Bryce Linkous represented Waynesville on the baseball field at Fifth Third Field in the Bob Ross Baseball Classic this past weekend. Over forty of the top baseball players represented north and south Dayton during this yearly baseball classic. Bryce earned the starting nod on the mound for his squad and struck out one in his only inning pitching. Offensively, Bryce was one for two with a single and stolen base. He played shortstop and third base throughout the all star game. Going into his senior year, Bryce has two single season baseball records for the Spartans.
