District Announcements
Students to take new state tests this spring

SC students will take new state tests beginning in April 2015.  These new tests are ACT Aspire™, ACT Workkeys® and The ACT®.  Not only will the tests reflect the achievement level of students, but the new tests will help teachers understand where their students are succeeding and where extra help or academic focus is needed.  These tests will be an important tool in ensuring student success.  Attached is a link to helpful information from the SC State Department of Education on the new state testing program and what it will mean for your student.
