In The Region:

Schools in Ohio have lost a lot of instructional time to calamity days this year, so the Ohio Department of Education is considering delaying many of the standardized tests the state requires each spring.

Jon Charlton of the Ohio Department of Education says the state may delay assessment tests that children in grades three through eight have to take. 

But he says graduation tests are not likely to be delayed.

“The Ohio graduation tests would be very difficult to move because of trying to get the results back in time for students to see if they are eligible to graduate or not. The spring administration of the Ohio graduation test is set for March 10 through March 23, and the results are supposed to be back on May 12th. And really a lot of schools are going to be having their graduations very close to that so they really have to get the results back as soon as possible.” 

For the younger grades, the tests usually begin April 21 and end May 9. Charlton says the state may add another week for testing to the end of that.
