As We Begin Ohio's NextGeneration Assessments...
Testing for students in grades 4-9 kicks off next week. Grade 3 will follow in mid-March. Our March testing window will run March 3-17.
The Ohio NextGeneration Assessments implemented this spring include English and Math tests developed by the PARCC Consortium, of which Ohio is a governing member, and state-developed Science and Social Studies tests.
The PARCC assessments have gained quite of bit of attention in recent weeks, much of it from parents who are concerned about the amount of time and stress the assessments are putting on Ohio’s students.
The tests, especially in this first year, have some shortcomings that the district acknowledges, most notably the amount of time associated with these new assessments, and a turnaround timeline for results that will make the data unusable for positively affecting instruction next fall. We see that, and so do many of you.
Our faculty and administration believe that good assessments should ultimately provide good information on student learning that our teachers can fold back into improving instruction for your child and his/her peers. Good assessment is an essential part of good instruction.
There are some positives to these NextGeneration Assessments:
- A great deal of work has gone into improving the quality of test questions students will encounter this year, ensuring that students can apply what they know, not just repeat it back. Crestview has been fortunate to have staff members on both the PARCC and State-level advisory teams who have overseen the quality standards for these test items.
- In future years, student results will be available to schools just a few days after testing concludes - possibly before the end of the school year. This will make state learning measures more useful than they’ve ever been for schools.
- While we will see an increase in the overall time spent testing, students now have multiple shorter opportunities to demonstrate what they know - test success is no longer limited to one opportunity on a single day of the year.
We are fortunate in our district to have implemented a focus on improved use of technology in day-to-day instruction prior to having it become a necessary consideration for online testing. This has allowed us to focus first on looking at technology as a tool to benefit student learning, rather than allowing test-prep to drive our technology decision-making.
It has been our approach and focus this year, and in years past, to do what’s right for kids. We want to offer good instruction because that’s what our students deserve, not because it’s required for test performance. We want our students to feel confident in their skills and have a balanced perspective on the role of testing in their education.
Increased outside pressures from the legislature continue to compete for our time and focus, but our commitment to students and community remains.
For those families who wrestle with how to best voice your concerns about state testing and the impact it has on instruction, we encourage you to make contact with your state legislators and the state-level board of education to appeal for assessment models that make good, usable measures of student learning the primary focus, and insist that testing for the purpose of accountability always takes a backseat to that student focus.
We thank you for the opportunity to educate your child and the trust you have placed with us to fulfill that role. The changes in this new educational landscape are challenging for us as well, and we are glad to be navigating those changes with a terrific and supportive community around us.
Art Students Participate in Ohio Governor's Youth Art Exhibition Regional Judging
We are excited to announce the results from the Ohio Governor's Youth Art Exhibition Regional Judging that was held on Saturday, March 7, 2015 at Ontario High School. Crestview High School placed 4th out of 20 regional high schools over the past weekend, and had 14 student art pieces chosen to move on to state competition. The three schools placed above us were: Ontario, Mansfield Senior and Lexington...pretty stiff competition! Getting into this show is the highest level of accomplishment for a high school art student!
The 14 CHS student art pieces will now advance to the state level of competition that will be held this Saturday, March 14 in Columbus. If their work does not advance it will be displayed in the Governor's Regional Show at the Mansfield Art Center.
Congratulations to the following art students who are advancing to the state competition: Alex Bishop (2 pieces); Brook Davis; Carson Chronister; Celina Cole; Colleen Cline (2 pieces); Kayla Eichelberger; Macie Schneeg; Madeline Godsey; Raven Rider; Samantha Salyers; Sara West; Sydney McLaughlin.

Blizzard Bag Update
January 28, 2015 - Crestview's Make-up Day Plan for school days missed due to poor weather conditions calls for make-up assignments, known as Blizzard Bags, to be assigned for the 7th, 8th, and 9th days of school cancellations.
We've made several adjustments of our process this year in response to the experiences and feedback on last year's assignments.
Blizzard Bags are intended to fill in some of the gap created by missed instruction when school is closed. Blizzard Bags should include relevant tasks which can be completed by the student with some level of independence in most situations. All Blizzard Bags should reflect material in the classes that is either Reinforcement, Enrichment or Extension, or Exploration/Introductory.
More information, deadlines, schedule of make-up days, and online repository of assignments: Blizzard Bag Central.
