Juniors and Parents/Guardians of Juniors:
All Juniors across the state of Arkansas will have the opportunity to take part in the State ACT test this Spring. We will use the paper exam this year and the initial test date for FLCHS is Tuesday, March 9th. The State ACT is similar to the National test and can be used as a college entrance test, however, with the State ACT students do not need to register online. We will register students for this exam.
I have attached two forms to this communication. It is your responsibility to read and understand the forms. From my interpretation you have 3 options:
Juniors who wish to take the exam on 3/9/21 and submit the scores to colleges or agencies like the NCAA for admissions purposes must return the completed Opt-In Form.
Juniors who do not wish to take the test at all must return the Refusal Form.
Juniors who do not return either form will still take the test on 3/9/21, but will not complete the non-test session and their results will only be sent to the school and the Dept of Education. The scores will not be sent to colleges or other agencies.
In order to plan for the test we need all forms returned by Friday, February 19th. If you would like to discuss your options or ask any questions please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 501-701-1700 ext. 1749. Thank you.
