We Help Two
Thanks to the generosity of Ohio FCCLA, Matthew will be able to attend school next year! He will also receive new uniforms, three meals a day, and part of his teacher's salary will be covered. We raised $500 for the Ohio FCCLA Endowment fund and will also be donating 210 pairs of socks to people in need around Ohio! We would love to partner with your chapter to make twice the difference.

There are five different ways to participate:

  • Socks for Your Own Cause (Raise funds for the cause of your choice, including your school)
  • Student Sponsorship (Sponsor a child to attend school in Uganda)
  • Socks for Legs (Provide a leg to amputees around the world who dream of walking again)
  • Socks for Water (Provide clean water to a community in Rwanda)
  • Best of Both (Raise funds for one of the first four projects and keep the rest for your own cause)
National Leadership Conference
Congratulations to the 182 Ohio FCCLA Students who qualified to compete at FCCLA National Leadership Conference in San Diego, California. Early Bird Registration closes May 18 and competitive events registration closes June 1. Do not delay in booking your hotel. There is no state hotel this year. All advisers attending the FCCLA National Leadership Conference are required to volunteer one day for competitive events.
WebXam Retake

WebXam end-of-course assessments may be retaken in the same school year by graduating students after allowing for additional instruction time. This enhances opportunities for students to demonstrate technical skills attainment for the purpose of graduation and report cards. The policy for WebXam same-year retakes includes:

  • Graduating students may retake most WebXam tests once in their final school year
  • A retake must be scheduled at least 30 days after the original assessment was performed
  • Field tests may not be retaken due to the length of the tests and earlier closing of the field test window

Students that are not graduating in the current school year may take an end-of-course test once per academic school year (each school year begins July 1 and ends June 30). These students cannot retake a test within a single school year. Students do not have to retake the course, but can participate in remediation and then retake the test the following year.
