Pro-Ohio has now changed to PRO-CORE! Students are used to taking bi-weekly Pro-Ohio tests. The format has changed to align with the new Common Core curriculum. As in the past, students take these bi-weekly tests which are aligned with the "CC" standards. Students can re-take any tests at home to increase their grade. Ask your child about their current scores.
