In compliance with Section 1111(b)(H) of ESSA, Cushing Public Schools would like to provide community stakeholders with an opportunity to provide meaningful input regarding our district’s intent to request permission to administer the ACT, as we have done consecutively in the past, in lieu of the statewide assessment (SAT).
What this means for our high school juniors is that they would continue taking the ACT as they have previously done. The Oklahoma State Department requires that all students take an assessment. Parents of Cushing Juniors will be receiving an optional online survey to complete which gives our school input.
Our district selection for the College & Career Readiness Assessment to be administered to all grade 11 students during the OSTP (Oklahoma State Testing) window is the ACT. From prior success, we have found that the ACT serves our students and their future endeavors well.
