State-Funded ACT Tests

State law requires districts and community schools to administer the state-funded ACT or SAT to all grade 11 students in the spring of the school year. Each year, districts and schools will select the test to administer to their juniors. | Notice to JVSD & ESC superintendents

Ordering information: Schools that choose to take advantage of this extended test administration should order test books April 20-22. ACT will be sending a communication regarding instructions for ordering tests.
