Troy OST Information

    State testing is just an opportunity for us to check and see where our kids are during their K-12 journey through Avon Lake City Schools. We do not ever want to put undue stress on our students to perform.  Mr. Scott, Dr. Dibee, Dr. Cocco, and I stress to our teachers that Avon Lake City Schools do not teach to the test and instead provide excellent instruction above and beyond the minimum expectancy. If we have done our job and have helped each child achieve their highest potential, test results will take care of themselves. We do not need to stress our children out the days before the test because our year-long efforts have prepared them to succeed. I only ask that the students give their best effort, come to school fed and well-rested, and everything else will take care of itself. Here is what you can do to help.


1) Make sure your child has a good night's sleep. This piece of advice is for your child’s Chromebook too. Please make sure it is fully charged if you take your device back and forth from school.

2) Encourage your child to do their best, but assure them that their best will do!

3) Feed your child a good breakfast

4) Hugs are good. Everyone likes a hug.

5) OPTIONAL: Send in a pair of earbuds or headphones - for specific test questions, they will have the option to listen to a computerized voice read the selection.

6) Tell them that you love them and that they are prepared

7) Get them to school on time - the bus is the best! We do not want anyone to feel rushed. Tests begin as early as 8:00 am. 

8) Please send all communication through the office. The teachers' computers will be locked into the test portal, and the student's devices will not be allowed to be accessed.

9) Feel free to ask questions about how the test went, but do not encourage second-guessing. What is done is done and we want confident kids moving forward.



All testing will be done in the morning for all in-person students. Online students will receive a separate email from Dr. Cocco. The daily schedule for remote students will differ, but the dates will be the same. We will have to adjust the order of the classes on some days. Make-up days will occur as soon as possible after the original testing date. Please email me if you have any questions.
