Beginning with the Class of 2018, the Ohio Department of Education is replacing the Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT) with three new pathways to earn a high school diploma in the State of Ohio.
In order to test all students at once, Toledo Public Schools has revised its high school schedule for its traditional high schools on March 14 and 15 and for the week of April 24-28 (Note: High school students will be tested on their first day back from Spring Break).
