College Readiness and SAT School Day
On Tuesday, April 9, 2019, we will offer
the SAT during the school day to Grade 11 students with the original graduation
year of 2020. The SAT will be administered from 7:45 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Students who are not involved in SAT testing should plan to arrive to school at
12:00 p.m. Students who arrive earlier to school will report to a designated location
to participate in other college readiness activities and will not be permitted
to leave school. Find out more information in this letter sent home to parents.

Student Agenda Book (2018-2019 Information, policies, and regulations)
Changes to information contained in the RMHS
Student Handbook (Spin Book page 8). The spirit of this change is to ensure
students do not have an overwhelming number of assessments on any given day.
Please note the revised department assessment days outlined below, effective
Monday: Social Studies, World Languages
Tuesday: English/ESOL, Science/Tech Ed
Wednesday: Math, Social Studies
Thursday: World Languages, English/ESOL
Friday: Science/Tech Ed, Math
(PE) and the Arts may give an assessment on any day of the week.
With respect to this policy, an assessment is a major formative
or summative assessment covering multiple skills or
standards, or units/chapters. Exit cards and other
checking-for-understanding assessments are not considered major formative and
summative assessments. Major assessments may fall under the formative,
summative, or test/quiz grade book categories. A major assessment may be, but
is not limited to, an exam, test, quiz, or project. If a teacher or PLC
decides to delay an assessment based on student preparedness, data, or other
factors, the assessment must be moved to the next available department day. By design, students should not have more than two major
assessments in one day, other than the possibility of having one in PE or the
arts.If a student is taking multiple courses within the same
department, it is possible they would exceed this number. In the event a
student has three or more major assessments, it is incumbent upon the student
to speak to teachers requesting a delay for one or more assessments.
