Online OGT Testing
Current law requires students who first enrolled in grade 9 before July 1, 2014, to take and pass the Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT) to earn a high school diploma. To provide flexibility for individuals who need to complete OGT requirements, the OGT will be administered as an online test beginning with the 2018-2019 school year until its final administration in 2022. There will be three online opportunities per year (September through July) to take any of the required subject tests of the OGT. Testers are required to have SSIDs or other approved State test identifiers.
OGT testing will occur at Central Office 3505 W. Lincolnshire Blvd, by appointment ONLY. To obtain an appointment, please call Mark Sholl at 419-473-8231. Students are afforded three opportunities to take the OGT during a calendar year. Students MUST present a Photo ID on testing day (eg. driver license or student ID).
