ACT Testing

December 6, 2017

This year, ACT testing will be held on Tuesday, April 3, 2018.

  • Grade 11 – Students in grade 11 will be administered the ACT Plus Writing test at no cost to them.
  • Grade 10 – Students in grade 10 will be taking the PreACT test at no cost to them.
  • Grade 9 and Grade 12 – Students in grades 9 and 12 will stay at home and be expected to engage in a flexible learning day, using Schoology and their district–issued iPad to complete assigned work for that day. A quite work environment at school will be provided for students who wish to be at school that day.
  • Students receiving special education services will either participate in one of the tests, engage in the flexible learning day, or attend a regular schedule of center–based classes on April 3. Also, a quiet work environment for grade 9 and 12 students engaged in the flexible learning day will be available at school for students who wish to be at school that day. Case managers will work with students and parents to ensure appropriate arrangements and accommodations.

Not having students in grades 9 and 12 at school on April 3 will help provide an optimal testing environment for all of our 10th and 11th grade students, limiting potential disruptions and making available the maximum number of staff to help proctor the tests.

The ACT Plus Writing and PreACT tests will take approximately five hours to administer. Students in grades 10 and 11 will have the option to eat lunch and remain at school until the end of the day or can leave school after they have completed testing. High school bus routes will run on a normal schedule that day.
Parents will receive additional information closer April 3rd.
