As we move toward the end of the first semester, we have some classes that must administer end of course or semester exams in order to meet state or College Credit Plus requirements. Consequently, Main Campus will operate under a Modified Block Schedule for the weeks of December 6-10 and December 13-17. This may be welcome news to our students as it brings back a version of ‘Hawk Time’, providing our students with a different opportunity to see teachers for support. The schedule for these weeks is as follows:


Wednesday

Thursday

8:10 - 9: 40

Period 1

Period 2

9:45 - 11:15 

Period 3

Advisory

11:20 - 1:25 

Period 4

Period 5

1:30 - 3:00

Period 7

Period 6


When we return from Thanksgiving Break, we will share information with our students about lunch schedules, testing locations, and other details.

 

This is a slight adjustment from what students may have originally been anticipating as we were planning to run a modified testing schedule during the week of November 29 - December 3 in order to administer the Government AIR tests. We will not be making any changes to the schedule that week, and the Government tests are being pushed back one week and will take place in Government classes during the extended periods on December 8, 9, 15, and 16. We will have some students taking other AIR make up tests during the week that we return from Thanksgiving, but those students will be called down separately and no change to the schedule is required. 

 

Regarding semester exams, Lakota Local Schools will not be administering exams at the end of this first semester; however, CCP classes and some other programs are required to administer cumulative exams. Those exams will take place during these block days. Teachers in other classes may use the extended time for projects or other extended assessments, but any assessments of this nature will be included in the second quarter grade and will not be a separate semester exam grade. We understand that there is value in teachers having some cumulative assessments in order to see if students are retaining learned material, but we also have asked our teachers to be mindful of overloading students by administering large cumulative tests in classes that do not have this requirement. We are confident that our team will manage this balance.
