ACT Aspire Testing Information

Dear parent or guardian, 

On April 26, 27, 28, and May 3rd -4th, your child will be taking ACT® Aspire® assessments for 9th grade Reading, Science, Math, Writing, and English. The valuable data we gain from these assessments allows us to make evidence-based decisions when addressing your child’s strengths, areas for improvement, and growth potential. This can give you an early indication of his or her likely readiness for the future, providing time to address areas where improvement is needed.

We will be administering Reading, Science, Math, Writing, and English during your student's 2nd-period class on the following days. 

  • ACT Aspire Summative assessment on 4/26th, 27th, and 28th, continuing on May 3rd and 4th  to continue charting your child’s progress year-over-year. 

Measuring academic growth is necessary to keep your child on track for college and career readiness. Our students rise to the challenge and we ask you to encourage your child to do their best and get plenty of sleep the night before. 

Thank you, 

Lori Brown

Test Coordinator
