  District 209 to Provide Make-Up High School Placement Exams for Eighth-Graders

 
  Local feeder schools within Proviso Township High Schools District 209 are beginning the process of preparing eighth-grade students for high school entry by administering the EXPLORE exam from November 4 to 17, 2014.

EXPLORE is a high school intake measure that gives high school counselors about the student’s academic achievement to structure class schedules, make appropriate course placement decisions in English and mathematics, and create  a  pathway for college and career exploration. EXPLORE serves as a baseline for monitoring academic progress and is considered one of the most crucial steps in a students’ high school transition.

“The EXPLORE exam is an important tool to help us understand the skill levels of next year’s freshman class and how we can be ready to meet their academic needs,” said Dr. Nettie Collins-Hart, superintendent of District 209. “With the data and information from these exams, we can be better prepared to put our incoming students on the right path to academic achievement and high school success.”
