Dear Parents/Guardian of Tenth Grade Students,

 

We share a responsibility to ensure your child is on track for college and career readiness.  With PreACT®, you can get useful information to help your child choose the right high school courses, think about ways to work on areas for improvement, and even begin discussions about their college and career interests. This year, we have chosen to administer the PreACT as one of the first actionable steps your students can take to become ready for college and plan for their futures. Your child may choose to have their information shared with colleges and scholarship agencies when they take the PreACT, which can help them with college recruitment and scholarship possibilities.  At no cost to you, we are administering the PreACT to all 10th grade students on September 16th, 2021, during regular school hours.

 

RCHS students will test at Rockdale and RMSST students will test at the RMSST campus. Students with approved testing accommodations will receive them. Students will be required to wear a face covering. Students should bring their own face covering or one will be provided for them. 

 

Students should bring two #2 pencils and an approved calculator.  Calculators with built-in or downloaded computer algebra system functionality such as models Texas Instrument TI-89 and TI-92 models are prohibited. Electronic devices such as cell phones, smart watches, fitness trackers, etc. are not allowed and cannot be on or near their person during the test. Students who have electronic devices must turn them in to the proctor or turn them off and place them in a bookbag that will be housed at a designated location until the conclusion of the testing session.

 

We are confident your student will do his/her best. This is an opportunity to see your student’s potential performance on the ACT® test. To learn more about the test, see the attached infographic, 6 Ways PreACT Helps You, or visit the Why Take the PreACT.

 

Regards,
