April 2:  Modified Day for ACT Test

New Prague High School will have an altered school day on April 2 due to the state required ACT Plus Writing Test for all juniors and the PreACT Test for sophomores. Due to the strict guidelines governing the ACT Test, we can only have students that are testing in the building during the exam period.


9th Grade and 12th Grade Students:  WILL NOT report to school but will have a blended learning day.


11th Grade Students:   Bring the following items for the ACT Test:  

  1.  Photo  I.D.   

  2.  Calculator   

  3.  #2 Pencils

Cell phones, smart watches, fitbits, and chromebooks are NOT allowed in the testing rooms.  They must leave those items at home or their lockers.


10th Grade Students:
  

This year, all sophomores at NPHS will have the opportunity to take the PreACT. The PreACT is modeled after the ACT and tests the subjects of english, math, reading, and science, within a shorter test window.  As a school, we will be able to use these results to provide both current achievement and projected future ACT scores for students who take the test. Individual student reports will be available. 


Why take the PreACT? 
The PreACT provides you and your child with information that can help select the right high school courses, think about ways to target areas for improvement and begin discussions about college and career. PreACT helps identify the following:

• Progress with the skills and knowledge required to succeed in college and beyond 
• Areas where extra help or additional courses are needed 
• Career possibilities that match the students’ interests 

Bring the following items for the PreACT Test:  

  1. Calculator

  2. #2 Pencils

Cell phones, smart watches, fitbits, and chromebooks are NOT allowed in the testing rooms.  They must leave those items at home or their lockers.


Schedule for 10th Grade and 11th Grade Students:
 

  • Buses will run on a normal schedule for any students needing transportation to school.

  • All 10th and 11th grade students MUST report as a normal school day at 7:40. 

  • 7:20-7:45:  Small breakfast will be provided for all testers. 

  • 7:45-12:30:  Juniors will complete the ACT Plus Writing Test and will be allowed to leave when their specific classroom is dismissed.  12:30 is an approximate time.
