You may see a daily comment at the very top of the home screen in a box titled “Today’s comments.” You can also view the daily comments by subject area by clicking on the “grades” link. Daily comments are designed to inform parents about a child’s behavior, actions or other important information regarding that specific day. You may also see assignment comments that are related to a specific assignment. These comments will appear directly below the name of the assignment and are designed to inform parents about information specific to that assignment. You will see these comments on the Home Screen on the day they are posted. After that, you can view the assignment comments by clicking the “grades” link and choosing a subject area.




STATE END-OF- COURSE TEST RESULTS AND RETESTS

Students who have taken State End-of- Course Tests received a print-out of their accumulated points so far and their most recent test 
score reports during class meetings last week.   Any student who has taken a State End-of- Course test is permitted to retake any of the 
tests they have previously taken.  

Urbana High School strongly recommends students who received 1 or 2 graduation points on a State 
End-of- Course Test (English I, English II, Algebra I, Geometry, Biology, American History, or American Government) to retake the test 
during the opportunity this winter.  

Intervention/Remediation will be provided and required for students who select to retest.  The re-testing window will be December 6-19.

Semester Exams are scheduled for December 19, 20. 21. Permission slips will be distributed during homeroom on November 28th.
