Accuplacer Testing every Tuesday and Wednesday from 10-16-11/17- As part of the Class of 2022 Graduation requirements, all seniors must demonstrate College Readiness Competency. There are a variety of different measures for this such as the SAT or ACT, but we focus pretty heavily on the Accuplacer test. This test serves dual purposes.
1) Meeting the college ready benchmarks on English and Math means your student has completed the Competency Graduation Requirement
2) It is also the Community College Placement Test, so any student taking college classes for the first time will have to take this test before they can register for Spring College classes.
We are offering this test each Tuesday (REMOTE) and Wednesday (IN PERSON) on the following dates:
10/26, 10/27, 11/2, 11/3, 11/9, 11/ 10, 11/16, & 11/17. Students can sign up for a time slot HERE. Space is limited so sign up ASAP.
