Principal's Message

Principal's Message

JR./SR. HIGH SCHOOL – Mike Myers, Principal and Brock Howe, Assistant Principal

December has gone by like a whirlwind.  Our students continue to prepare themselves for success in the classroom between concerts, games and matches.  This year we finished the 1st   semester (2nd quarter) before Christmas break.  We had exams on Monday, December 20th and Tuesday, December 21st.  The second semester began Monday, January 3. Semester grade reports were mailed out on Friday, January 7.

As semester testing begins, it serves to remind that our present seniors will be using the Ohio end-of-course tests as a requirement for graduation.  As we make our way into the second semester and into the spring state testing, this and further information is worth noting again.  The Class of 2022 (seniors) are required to take seven end-of-course exams that the state of Ohio is providing in the following areas: English I and II, Algebra I, Geometry, American History, American Government and Biology.  

Each test is scored 1-5 with five being the highest score.  A total of 18 points (at least four total points needed for the two English tests, four points for the two math tests, and six points in the other three tested areas) is required to meet the state graduation requirement along with the credit requirements set up by the state of Ohio and our local Wayne Trace board of education.  Our seventh graders will be tested in the areas of reading and math, while our eighth graders will be tested in reading, math, and science.  One change, according to the State, starting last year the freshman will not have to take the English 1 state test. Testing will occur around the second or third week of April for English Language Arts, and the end of April and early in May for the other tests.  We will keep you informed as testing time draws nearer.  The graduation requirements for the class of 2023 and beyond are different from the class of 2022.  These have been explained to each class very thoroughly.  If you have any questions in regards to this, please feel free to contact our guidance counselors Mrs. Sarah Franz or Mrs. Tricia Langhals at the high school.  

Wayne Trace Junior/Senior High School is a great place to learn!  If you have questions, please do not hesitate in contacting your son/daughter’s teachers.  We will continuously strive to provide the best education to our students.  Please be safe and stay healthy! 
Go Raiders!
Mike Myers, Principal
