Students who do not reach benchmark by their senior year must take a Transition Math or Transition English class. These classes are intended to offer remediation so that students may meet benchmark through they KYOTE test. Meeting benchmark scores ensures that students will not need to take costly remedial classes during their freshman year in college.
All juniors have taken a full length practice ACT and all freshman and sophomores have taken ACT benchmark tests. Ask your child how they performed and what goals they have set for themselves!
