is now available in the counseling office. If you know you will need to take a class in summer school, please submit your Summer School Registration Form as soon as possible.
An ACT resource guide has been put together to help parents and students better prepare the ACT assessment, as well as to better understand their ACT results. The guide should also be help your child as they prepare for retaking the ACT during the summer or next fall.
You can access the resource guide through the following link:
I would like to specifically draw your attention to the section of the guide titled Incentives. We are piloting an ACT recognition program to honor and celebrate students who have challenged themselves with rigorous courses and who have earned either high ACT scores or a high weighted Grade Point Average. These students represent our school incredibly well and this is a way of honoring their dedication, persistence and effort.
We have also built in tiers of recognition to honor our students improve their scores. Students who work hard to achieve their goals are often the students who experience the most success in college, workforce and/or military endeavors. We hope the incentives will motivate students to do their very best and to also focus on creating a plan improve their initial scores. It is important to note that students who hurry through the test or who put forth little to no effort on the test will not be considered for improvement recognition.
The levels are detailed on the first tab within the resource guide. As of right now, the incentives will be available to seniors during the 17-18 school year (current juniors). However, we hope to continue (and improve) this recognition program for years to come. The results of the first year will determine if and how we will move forward.
Thank you for taking the time to read this message and to review the link to the resource guide. As previously mentioned, the ACT Resource Guide can also be accessed through the Dobyns-Bennett website. Please encourage your students to do their very best on their upcoming test!
