Welcome to Youngstown City Schools

Happy Spring YCSD Families,

This month we begin AIR testing, the tests which assess students' knowledge across English language arts, mathematics, social studies and science.

While the tests are important and we hope students and parents understand their significance, we at YCSD believe the curriculum students have been studying all year under the leadership of their teachers and school administrators has prepared students for the exams.

We ask that parents and other mentors and family members encourage students to do their best on the tests. A good night's rest the night before the assessment is also helpful. 

Each school's administration is determining the testing windows for their respective buildings . The testing schedule for each building should be shared with families and available at the school's main office.

More information about the AIR tests is available under Teaching and Learning on this website . Go under Departments at the top of the page and click on Teaching and Learning on the drop down menu and then go to AIR State Testing Information.
