Dear Parent/Guardian of 11th Grade Student:
Another school year is underway! It’s amazing to me time flies. I hope the start of your child’s junior year
has been great! There are a lot of things that happen junior year, and I want to make sure you are aware of
what that involves.
ACT (college entrance exam): There are big changes for the ACT in Wisconsin this year. There are two
different ways to take the ACT. The first is the traditional way, which I will refer to as the National ACT.
The second is brand new this year, which I will refer to as the WI State ACT. Please see back of letter for
details and explanations:

State law requires that all 11th grade students in WI take the ACT and Work Keys. Therefore, it is
REQUIRED for all juniors to attend school on
March 3, 2015, AND March 4, 2015. Please plan vacations and appointments accordingly.
Thank you for your cooperation as we go through these changes.
I know this is a lot of information, but the junior year really sets the stage for after high school. We will be
able to discuss things further as dates draw near. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not
hesitate to contact me. I wish you all a great junior year!
Sincerely,
Rachel L. Berg
