Update: The New 2015-16 KHS and KMS Schedules
Principals Amstutz and Campbell are excited to announce a meeting to be held on Tuesday, March 31st at 7:00 PM in the KHS Cafeteria to hold a Q&A session and discussion about a proposed change to the grades 6-12 bells for the coming school year. The change is simple, but it offers a lot of benefits to both middle and high school students. The proposed change is to still run an 8 period day (7 classes and a lunch for each student), but once a week students will have each of their classes for a double block period. This means they will have half of their classes on one day and the other half the next day. They will see each teacher 4 times each week instead of 5, but one of those meetings will be for the extended period of time. The benefits are many, including:
OACAC College Fair on April 27th at West Geauga
Kirtland HS is partnering with West Geauga High School, who will be hosting an OACAC sponsored college fair on April 27th from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. Pre-fair speakers will be presenting topics that are pertinent to the application process beginning at 5 pm. A large number of colleges from Ohio and other states will be present and available to answer any questions. This is a wonderful opportunity for Juniors and their parents to gain exposure to various college representatives prior to the application process - all ages are welcome. Please see the attached flyer here for location and more information.
High School Schedule-Wednesday, March 11th
Delayed Start Wednesday is still on for March 11th. However, due to OGT testing, KHS will continue to have an alternate schedule. Testing will begin 30 minutes later (8:30-11:00), followed by lunch until 11:34. Sophomores are to report by the testing time (breakfast will be served from 7:30-8:25), and the rest of the student body can arrive at 11:00 if lunch is desired or 11:30 if not. KHS will run odd periods tomorrow, same as this past Monday. Thanks.
School Calendar Clarification
In the March 6th edition of the Kirtland Chronicle, there were a couple of inaccuracies about the proposed school calendar for the 2015-16 school year. The article suggested that the calendar was approved already, and it also stated that the last day of school in the 2015-16 school year would be June 30th 2016. The proposed school calendar, which is attached here, has not been approved by the Board of Education. It will not be considered for approval until the board meeting on March 30, 2015. The last day of school on the proposed calendar is June 2nd 2016.
Here is a link the to the proposed school calendar for the 2015-16 school year.

KHS Testing Schedule Revised
Due to decisions made at the state level back in December, there were some minor changes made to the testing schedule that was shared at the Testing Community Meeting this past November. The state has decided not to double test sophomores in English and math. So, sophomores taking the OGT (all of them) will not take the PARCC English 10 test. Also, sophomores who are enrolled in Geometry will not take the PARCC Geometry exams. All other tests are still on for sophomores, including AIR's U.S. History test. Only sophomores are affected by these changes. Please see the revised schedule below. Thanks.
KMS/KHS Delayed Start Wednesday Information
As communicated at the December 8th Straight A Fund Grant presentation, students in grades 6-12 will have the option of coming to school on a 1 hour delay every Wednesday, beginning January 7th, 2015. During this time, teachers will report at usual times to participate in Professional Development in preparation for grant implementation. Please review the Fact Sheet by clicking here and contact Dr. Campbell or Mr. Amstutz if you have questions.
