Dear Juniors and Parents/Guardians,
ACT packets are being dispersed during language arts classes this week. Junior students planning to take the ACT must follow the instructions in the packet and complete their non-Test information online by March 9th. Once students have created and verified their MyACT account, students must click on ENTER STUDENT CODE button, then enter the student code EXACTLY as listed on the “Non-Test Instructions for Student” form included in the packet to begin the non-test information. Students planning to take concurrent enrollment classes next year must select SLCC as one of their college choices.
What to expect on March 7th, testing day:
Alphabetical rosters of junior students with testing room assignments are posted in the hall across from the Attendance Office.
Junior students that arrive late on test day will not be permitted to take the ACT. Students should report to their assigned testing room by 7:30 a.m.
Students are responsible for bringing:
· FULLY CHARGED Chromebook (school issued only)
· Current official photo ID – original, current (valid) ID by a city/state/federal government agency or your school (hard plastic card format, no photo copies)
· Permitted calculator for use only on the math section. To know whether your calculator is permitted, see act.org/calculator-policy.html or call 800.498.6481 for a recorded message about the current ACT calculator policy.
Students are encouraged to leave cell phones, smartwatches and fitness bands at home as they are not permitted during testing time.
