Preliminary test results for the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) and Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) were released from the Ohio Department of Education recently. The Bellaire Local Schools continue to show improvement in most all areas of the statewide tests.
The Elementary and Middle School continue to lead the way as students in all tested areas met standards established by the O.D.E.
Elementary Students in grades three and four met the state standard in both reading and math. Middle School students scored 10 for 10 in grades five through eight in tested areas ranging from Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
Bellaire High School met the same indicators as last year, however, they show a significant improvement in its performance index, jumping from 84.6 to 90.5.
Final testing results should be available sometime in the first part of August.
