2018 ACT + Writing

Minnesota legislation requires school districts to offer the ACT + Writing test to all juniors during the school day in the spring of their junior year at no cost to families.  Districts request reimbursement from the Minnesota Department of Education. Though ACT scores are part of the student’s official ACT record, they do not appear on District 833 transcripts. Students may review and send copies of their scores to colleges at www.actstudent.org
