Westside High School will host its 3rd Annual AVID Week from April 23-April 27. The following events will be taking place:
In accordance with state and local policies, state EOC exams will account for 20% of a student's overall grade in the course. Failure to take the exam will result in a grade of zero in that grading category. Students are not able to exempt state EOC exams. While most testing sessions will take place in the morning, we will have several afternoon testing sessions. Students will be assigned specific testing sessions to attend. Those testing times and locations will be posted throughout the school and will be communicated via email to the classroom teachers. The only students eligible to recieve testing accommodations are those with a 504, IEP, or an ESOL plan. Parents, please refrain from scheduling appointments or other out-of-school activities on the date(s) your child will be testing. Also, please be sure to have your child at school on time. Electronic devices will be collected prior to testing and will be returned to the students after the testing session is complete. See the schedule below for the administration of state EOC exams.
