ACT Parent Letter
- First published on 21 February 2017 Posted in CHS News & Press Releases
Dear Parents and/Guardians,
On Tuesday, February 28 and Wednesday March 1, Chilton High School will be administering the ACT plus Writing and ACT Workkeys examinations. Both tests are state mandated for all 11th grade students. Recently, our faculty has engaged the Juniors in ACT preparation exercises and examination pre-administration in preparation for next weeks statewide test. Attendance of Juniors on both days is essential.
The Junior (11th Grade) level examinations will be administered from approximately 8am to 11:30am on both days. Calculators are provided for each examinee. Accessing any electronic devices is prohibited at any time during the examination time block. Snacks and water will be provided to students during exam breaks and lunch will provided by the Chilton Public Schools for any student with accommodations, such as extended time, which cause the student to test beyond the scheduled examination time period.
For a secure, fair and cost-efficient administered examination, on Tuesday, February 28, the ONLY students that will be allowed to enter Chilton HS are those that are:
- 11th grade students taking the ACT plus Writing examination
- In need of academic assistance
- Have outstanding (missing) course material
- Have tests and other assessments to be made-up
Students in grades 9, 10 and 12, in general, will NOT be allowed in the building on Tuesday, February 28 unless scheduled to be so (for reasons referenced above) during the academic assistance time or test make-up which will be run from 8-11:30am. The buses will run at normal times and any student that remains in the building after the testing or academic assistance period will be supervised until 3:10pm when buses arrive.
For the Workkeys examination on March 1, classes will run on a “Customary” Wednesday schedule with all students and 11th grade students will be excused from their academic courses during blocks 1 and 2 to test in the All-Purpose Room (Wrestling Room).
Your assistance in carrying out the delivery of these examinations is appreciated. More information on the ACT suite of assessments can be found at https://dpi.wi.gov/assessment/act. If you have questions or need more information about the testing procedures outlined above, please call the HS Main Office at 920.849.2358.
Respectfully yours in earnest,
Mr. Ty Breitlow
Principal – Chilton High School
