COLLEGE & CAREER READINESS

Third Quarter, 2017/18

New Schedule Change Policy

Due to the amount of planning and coordination that goes into making the master schedule based on student course requests, and staffing availability, schedule changes are not permitted. Students who have chosen to not turn in scheduling paperwork by the required date are automatically scheduled by their counselor and no schedule changes will be permitted. Certain changes will only be made on a case by case basis and only after consulting with the student's counselor then referred to an administrator before it is determined that the change is necessary. Appeal forms are available in the Counseling Office.

ACT Workshop at MSU!

On Friday, March 23rd, there will be a Chad Cargill ACT workshop at MSU. Students will receive relevant, practical information on how to increase their ACT score. Chad will explain that the ACT is beatable and that each test will ask the same questions just worded differently. The workshop covers what will be on the test and how to master the techniques. The workshop is not a practice test. It covers general ideas about the ACT as a whole as well as individual sections of English (including what the test-makers are looking for and the relevant English rules needed for the test), Math (including exactly what formulas and rules you will need to answer virtually every question), Reading (including three strategies on how to best take the reading comprehension section), and Science (including common question types and strategies to understand and beat the science reasoning section).

COST: $30 per student. Students need to pick up a permission form in the counseling center and spots are limited. If writing a check, make it payable to Willard High School. Deadline to turn in permission form and pay for the workshop is Tuesday, March 13th.
