The high school received all of the fall end-of-course exam results at the beginning of last week. Reports for families will be available by the end of March. These were our first state test results since the fall of 2019 test data. With everything we have dealt with through this pandemic, there was some uncertainty of what would come from the results. However, we received a lot of positive news! Our English II scores came back at the highest proficiency percentage we have ever had in one semester on the EOC assessment! English II had a 72.5% passing rate and improved nearly 6% over the past year. Other highlights were Algebra I at 89% and Government at 88%. American History went up 15% from the previous year to 67%. Through all the challenges the staff, students, and parents have learned to adjust to, it is good to see that academic growth and progress has been made. This is contributed to one big team effort! We have made progress through adversity and learned a lot of new skills along the way. We still have a lot of progress that needs to be made. We just need to keep working and helping each other along the way! Josh Jones Adena High School Principal

Parent/Guardian Update Adena Staff Vaccination Day Round #1 Adena Staff have been assigned vaccination times for Thursday, February 25th, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.. We will have to travel to Union Scioto Local Schools to receive our shots. Due to the length of time involved for each individual to travel to the site, receive their shot, wait the required 15 minutes and then return, we will have to make February 25th a distance learning day in order to get this accomplished. We want to let everyone know in advance so you can make arrangements. Our District Required Hours Status is in good standing. We have used a considerable amount of our hours to provide the delayed start requested at the beginning of the year due to the pandemic. We have used 7 weather-related distance learning days and will use 1 day for vaccinations in order to avoid having school in session until June 16th to meet Ohio requirements. It is important to let everyone know that we are carefully tracking academic data this year, and our students are right on target for the expected score levels on achievement measures. Our students are to be commended for keeping up with their work, achieving success in their extracurricular activities and making in-person learning possible through their cooperation with CDC guidelines and Ohio mandates. Next year we will be able to start on a normal calendar. We certainly hope to use fewer distance learning days and hope the weather cooperates a little better than it has this year. Most importantly, we are guardedly optimistic we can put much of the pandemic-related issues impacting this year behind us. Again, as it stands, we are still on track to be finished with this year on June 4th. We appreciate everyone cooperating and working together to get through the pandemic which is obviously a once-in-a-generation event. Spring will be here soon and hopefully we will be returning to a more normal situation. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
