• Taking the ACT is still a graduation requirement for the Class of 2021. Many students were not able to test during the summer. We are anticipating that All Current Seniors and Juniors will take the ACT Free of charge during school. More information will be shared soon.


    Although some colleges and universities are waiving ACT as a requirement for applications, ACT scores may still impact scholarship opportunities. To register for ACT(2020), click https://www.act.org/ to register.

    Arrival and Departure:

    • Students are expected to be at their enrolled school by 7:15 a.m. on Tuesday, September 22.
    • Unfortunately, the district will not be able to provide transportation to the testing site.  All families will need to make their own transportation arrangements for the September 22 ACT.
    • We anticipate that testing will be completed around noon. If you are picking up your student, please be at the school no later than noon.

    Students Should Bring: 

    • A mask: Students are required to wear a mask fully covering their mouth and nose during the check-in process and while in the school building.
    • An acceptable form of ID: The ID should be an original, current government ID (city, state or federal) or an ID from the student’s school. Admission may be allowed if testing staff can personally recognize the student, but we recommend that everyone brings an ID if possible.
    • Multiple sharpened #2 pencils with erasers: Do not bring mechanical pencils or ink pens. Only #2 pencils are allowed.
    • A permitted calculator: Some schools may provide calculators, but students may bring an ACT-permitted calculator if they have one. You can find information on ACT-permitted calculators at www.act.org/calculator-policy.html
      This calculator policy is designed to ensure fairness for all examinees, avoid disturbances in the test room, and protect the security of the test materials.
       or by calling 800-498-6481 for a recorded message.

    Health and Safety:

    • Temperature and symptom checks will be performed before students are allowed to test.
    • Students will adhere to social distancing policies before, during, and after testing.
    • Students should not come to the school for the test if they are not feeling well or have a fever.
