Free ACT opportunity for district juniors
The Snohomish School District will be offering the American College Test (ACT) free of charge for all district high school juniors on April 24 during the school day. The test is voluntary; however, we strongly recommend that all of our juniors take the test. This is an amazing opportunity for students to take a college entrance exam at no cost to families and for our schools to collect data that will help improve student learning. As a district, offering free ACT reflects our commitment to eliminating barriers to career and college readiness. Students testing on April 24 at their high school will be registered by the district office. Therefore, registration is not required for the April 24 testing session. Students who take the ACT outside of the April 24 district-hosted testing will need to follow the ACT national testing process located at www.act.org. To learn more, contact your student’s high school or visit this link.

Two replacement levies placed on February 2018 ballot
