B.     Check to Shanan Barthold for $40 (one time fee for school year August - June)

   Students may take the ACT Special Testing every 60 days (September-June of each year).  ACT requires a testing fee for each registration. Shanan makes copies of all documentation, completes initial and additional registration, contacts school official for additional information if required by ACT, and schedules all testing times and proctors.


We will complete section B (Supervisor), C and D (tentative testing date) and send to ACT. When ACT sends the testing materials back to us, Shanan Barthold will contact you to set up the testing time.  The specific testing time will not be set up until we have the test in hand and check to see if the correct material has been sent to us. You will also receive a confirmation letter from ACT (testing time is tentative). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 989-8333 or email dhminor@bellsouthh.net.
