FAQ (Previously Published)

Q: Will we return to school this year?

A: As of today, the target date is May 1. We will await guidance and information from the governor and proceed as if we are, and we are planning in case we are not.

Q: Will I have to take End-of-Course tests?

A: Per HB 197, signed by the Governor on 3/27/2020, these will be waived this year.

Q: If I do not have to take End-of-Course, will this keep me from graduating?

A: Students will not be penalized if they were on track to graduate as of the date the Governor’s order went into effect. They still MUST pass coursework!

Q: Will I have to take WebXam (CT) this year?

A: Per HB 197, signed by the Governor on 3/27/2020, these will be waived this year. They still MUST pass coursework!

Q: Will this affect me from graduating?

A: Here is the latest information from the Ohio Department of Education. Per ODE FAQ:

“Ensuring that the Class of 2020 is on track to graduate is an important priority. Schools should take this opportunity to review the status of each senior to determine the extent to which the student has met graduation requirements for the Class of 2020. There is significant flexibility in the graduation requirements for the Class of 2020. They still MUST pass coursework!

It is important that schools understand the needs of each of their students and have, to the extent possible, a plan to help each student complete these requirements during the remainder of the school year, both during the closure period (as practicable) and at such time as school may resume.

Should the current situation change, the Department of Education will provide additional information. Our commitment is to provide reasonable flexibility in the interest of doing what is right for students”

MCCTC has extensive data for which of our students were on track prior to this situation occurring. If you have a question, reach out to your child’s counselor. We will be in contact with all senior families as soon as the state releases the next update and we interpret what they decide

Q: Will we still have spring break and summer as scheduled?

A: The calendar will not change, so yes.

Q: What about prom, NTHS, and other events?

Q: What about summer school and camps?

A: If we are allowed in the building we will offer summer school and camps. We will offer summer school online if we are not allowed in the building for some reason.

Q: What about the industry credentials I was going to get as a senior that would help me in my future job?

A: We are working through options here. If we are allowed in the building in the summer, we may offer opportunities for camps centered around credentials.Details to come, but we assure you that finding a solution for seniors is a priority.

Q: What about outstanding fees?

A: Admin is working through this now. You will be contacted if you have fees that are outstanding (only if you are a senior). If you have any problems with payment, simply notify administration and they will assist you with options.
