Reminder: ACT® Dates & Weekly Schedule Change

Remember, next Tuesday is the scheduled ACT® date for high school juniors, and the Plan B Hybrid learning schedule will be different for all middle and high school students next week.

Although the ACT is a high school test specific to 11th-graders, the middle school Plan B hybrid schedule must be adjusted along with the high school schedule, due to bus routes shared between middle and high schools, and the need to dedicate transportation on March 9 to juniors taking the ACT.

The week of March 8-12 will begin like a normal Plan B Hybrid week, with middle and high school students in Group A attending school on campus Monday, March 8.

Tuesday, March 9 is an ACT test date for high school juniors in North Carolina. Since students are required by state officials to take this test and the ACT does not offer a remote administration option, all juniors in Group A and B will attend school on-campus on March 9. All other students in middle and high school will have a Remote Learning Day, instead of the usual district-wide day of remote learning on Wednesday.

The following day, March 10, will be a “B Day” for students in Group B to attend on-campus. March 12 is currently an Optional Teacher Workday and not a student day. However, in the case of inclement weather canceling school in the next few weeks, could become a student day and “B Day” for Group B students to attend on-campus.

Here’s what that looks like:
