Due to the circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic, juniors who will be seniors next school year (2020-21) will be given the opportunity to take a district-paid ACT test in October during the school day. The testing opportunity replaces this April’s testing date.
Students who would like to take an ACT test before October may do so, at their own cost, on one of the national Saturday testing dates. Students who need support with costs for this assessment can apply for a waiver through their high school.
It’s important to note that many colleges and universities may not be requiring a standardized assessment score as part of their admissions process this fall given circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. Students should contact their post-secondary institutions of interest for specific modifications to the admission requirements they may have.
Next year's juniors will be given the opportunity to take a district-paid ACT test during the school day in the spring of 2021, as has been district practice.
