AHS ANNUAL DRUG SCAN HELD TODAY, APRIL 24, 2014

In a planned and scheduled event this morning, April 24, 2014, between the Aurora City Schools, the Aurora Police Department and neighboring communities who have trained “drug dogs,” our school district conducted our annual drug scan of Aurora High School which includes the parking lots. 

When we conduct these searches, we begin by having students in a lockdown mode, and then relax the requirement during the search.  During this activity, no visitors were allowed to enter the building, nor were students allowed to exit the school.   

We are committed to a safe and drug free environment and appreciate your support in insuring our students are healthy.  Nothing was found inside the school during the search.

AURORA SCHOOLS’ OAA TESTING DATES CHANGED

The Ohio Department of Education has given school districts the opportunity to change their OAA (Ohio Achievement Assessment) testing dates.  They are allowing districts to move their testing dates back due to the unusually large number of calamity days that districts have needed to use this school year.   

The Aurora School District will be moving the OAA testing dates for students in grades 3-8 from the week of April 29- May 1, 2014 to May 6-8, 2014.  This will give our students another week of instruction to prepare for the tests.  The new make-up testing dates will be the following week on May 13-15, 2014.
