for Junior ACT Testing on February 27, 2018

On Tuesday, February 27, 2018, we will be administering the state funded ACT test.  All JUNIORS at WHS, including our students attending the Warren County Career Center, must take it. This is the only “free” and state mandated ACT test that will be offered. There are other National Testing dates that the ACT offers and registration information on those dates are available on the ACT website. Since this test is so important for our juniors, we have decided to have only juniors report to school this day. All other high school students will be given an online assignment and will not be reporting to school on test day.

The morning of February 27th, students are to arrive at Waynesville High School at 7:30 A.M. in the main lobby of the high school. A small, continental breakfast will be provided before the test in the cafeteria. Students will be checked-in by staff members, directed to breakfast, then their assigned testing rooms. The testing room assignments will also be posted in the front entry way to assist them. The student check-in process, breakfast, passing out of testing materials, and organizing students will take about 30 minutes and we will have a start time of 8 A.M. for the ACT.
Students will need to bring picture identification, two pencils, and an ACT approved calculator (check www.actstudent.org or call 1-800-498-6481 for a recorded message about the current ACT calculator policy if you are unsure if your specific calculator is allowed). Testing will conclude at approximately 11:30 P.M. Students will be released after testing is completed if they have a signed permission slip.  Permission slips are due to the main office by February 26th, 2018.

Juniors will then be called down to the cafeteria to complete their ACT pre-testing activities. Freshmen, sophomores, and seniors will have other activities planned during that time, more details to come.

Our students from the Warren County Career Center and our CCP students will be joining us as well. WCCC students will have a bus available to them at 8:45 in front of the high school for transportation back to the career center after completion of activities. They will report directly to the cafeteria upon arrival.

We are SMALL enough to know our students. That gives them BIG opportunities.
