STUDENTS WOULD STILL BE ABLE TO TAKE THE A-C-T AT SCHOOL UNDER LEGISLATION THAT RECENTLY PASSED THE HOUSE.

 

STATE LAW REQUIRES SCHOOLS TO OFFER ONE COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAM TO ALL STUDENTS. TRADITIONALLY, THAT’S BEEN THE A-C-T…BUT THE STATE RECENTLY ENTERED INTO A THREE YEAR CONTRACT FOR SCHOOLS TO GIVE THE S-A-T INSTEAD. REPRESENTATIVE MIKE UNES OF EAST PEORIA IS SPONSORING LEGISLATION TO MAKE SURE STUDENTS CAN PICK EITHER EXAM.

 

 

THE BILL WILL NOW BE CONSIDERED BY THE SENATE.
