Below is a copy of the school messenger message going out tonight for sophomores in College/Career and any sophomore/junior without an ASVAB score:
Greenwood Community High School will be offering an ASVAB administration on March 9th at 7:30am. The ASVAB stands for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery and it is a well-researched aptitude test that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success. Sophomores and Juniors who have not already participated in an ASVAB administration are scheduled to sit for the administration.
We encourage all students to take the ASVAB for multiple reasons.
- After participating in the ASVAB, students will have access to the the ASVAB Summary Results (ASR) sheet which includes a unique access code each student can use to login to the ASVAB program website and complete post-test career exploration and aptitude activities.
The Graduation Pathways Infographic has been attached for your reference.
- FOR STUDENTS IN THE 2023 Graduation Class: The Graduation Pathways graduation requirement plan requires that your student meet at least 1 Post- Secondary Ready Competency in order to earn a diploma. Our students have found good success meeting the ASVAB benchmark. We believe it is in all students' best interest to take the ASVAB exam as they attempt to meet one of those benchmarks
- FOR STUDENTS IN THE 2022 Graduation Class: Students in the 2022 graduating class may choose to graduate under the class of 2023 and beyond graduation requirements called Graduation Pathways. Students who do not pass the ISTEP+ exam but do meet the Graduation Pathways requirements can opt into those requirements. This would mean that the student does not have to retake the ISTEP+ exam in their senior year and qualifies to earn a diploma. The ASVAB is one of the ways that students may meet the Post-Secondary Ready Competency that Graduation Pathways requires. A qualifying score on the ASVAB is a 31 and for the aforementioned reasons, we are encouraging your student to take the ASVAB offered on Tuesday and put forth their best effort.
ASVAB results are reported to students and counselors on the ASVAB Summary Results sheet. Scores are released to military recruiters 7 calendar days after results are mailed to the school, without phone numbers or mailing addresses. To request that your student's scores not be provided to military recruiters, please complete this form
TO DISTANCE LEARNER FAMILIES
According to our records, your student has indicated that they will come to school to participate in the ASVAB administration. Distance Learners are encouraged to attend if possible. Distance learning students may go home after the test is complete if they have their own ride home. If they remain in the building after the test is complete, they can attend their classes virtually from the IMC.
Thanks for your time!
