K-12 Testing

Forty-five percent of Toledo high school students who were supposed to re-take the Ohio Proficiency Test reading or writing exams were absent for the scheduled March administration. Passing the OPT is required for graduation, and those who don’t take it are counted as failing, hurting the school’s accountability rating. The district superintendent warned that those who skip the May or July re-takes will not be allowed to participate in extra-curricular activities or get work permits.
