What Your Colleagues Are Saying
 

“The thing I like about ACT: At our school we don’t focus a lot on scores—we focus a lot more on benchmarks because we can tell what that means.” 

Alan Schotts
Career Center Coordinator,
Cody High School

“Students may be missing out on more scholarship opportunities—and, possibly, college altogether—by not taking the ACT.”

 –Leslie Trundy
School Counselor
Morse High School

“When we say we value the ACT results and we’re going to take assessments once a year to find out where your kids are moving towards that college and career readiness benchmark, parents say that’s a value they can get behind.”

Declan FitzPatrick
Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Fox C-6 School District
