Greetings to our Booker Family,

I would like to extend a Happy New Year to each of you.  I am looking forward to great things happening within our Booker family in 2017.  We are halfway through this school year, which is marked by the administration of semester exams and End of Course Standards of Learning testing.

This letter includes important information regarding the administration of semester exams and Standards of Learning tests within our school. I encourage you to take a moment to read this letter which will provide pertinent information to the upcoming dates. January poses a large amount of testing for our students and we have made the attempt to lessen the anxiety by scheduling the testing over a 3-week window. 

Semester Exams
High school semester exams will be administered in January.  We will NOT have early release days for semester exams as it has been in the past; students will remain in school for full days during the administration of exams.  To avoid students having semester exams, for an entire day, below is the schedule we will follow at Booker T. Washington. The exam schedule covers administration for both the Even (blocks 2,4,6,8) and Odd (blocks 1,3,5,7) days. Please read carefully to make sure you know exactly when the semester exams will be administered.

Standards of Learning Testing
Currently we have students enrolled in 4X4 Algebra and Geometry classes.  The classes meet every day and are scheduled to end in January.  The students enrolled in those particular classes will take the End of Course Standards of Learning (SOL) tests in January.  Additionally, expedited retesting for SOLs will occur in January.  Students who scored a 375-399 on the various SOL tests are eligible for the expedited retakes.  A substitute test to the English SOL is the WorkKeys.  Identified students will have the opportunity to take the substitute test also. The schedule for the SOL tests is listed below.
