• Students will meet weekly with their teacher to discuss concerns, questions,
group work, mini-lessons, and parent-teacher conferences (once a year, or per
teacher or parent request).
• Parents need to be very active in their child’s education, so they are successful
at these critical ages. They will need much support to understand the
curriculum, and help with their technological skills. Remember that they have
to do the work, and you are there as a support or facilitator only.

teacher and ACE office staff, as we want to make this experience the best

attend at least one of the
tutoring sessions and get caught
up on all work.

with his/her teachers, families,

ACE Academy Testing• Per the state of Ohio, all students
enrolled in a community school
are required to be tested in
reading and math each year.
Testing will be setup at a later
date and must be attended. If
your child does not attend, this
can lead to their dismissal from
the program.
Statewide Testing• Each year students in grades 3-8 are
required to take the Ohio
Achievement Assessments in the
Spring, usually in April.
• 3rd graders also take the Reading
OAA in October
• 3rd-8th graders all take Reading and
Math and depending on the year
some will take Writing
3rd Grade Guarantee• Ohio's Third Grade Guarantee ensures that every struggling reader gets the
support he or she needs to be able to learn and achieve.

appears to be falling behind in reading, the school will immediately start a
reading improvement plan. That needs to be supported by the parent, and
progress reports will be sent home quarterly.

any student who is not on track.
