ACT Testing & Virtual Days

When students excel on the ACT, it opens doors to increased scholarship funds and exciting college opportunities for them!  That's why Bossier Schools has implemented new ACT initiatives and testing arrangements for our high school students this year!  At no cost to our families, all 9th graders will take the Pre-ACT and all 10th graders will take the ACT this year.  This will provide our students with experience prior to taking the ACT their junior year, while giving schools and parents information on how we can help our students increase their ACT scores!  Each year, all juniors take the ACT as part of state testing and select seniors will take the ACT at school as well.  To conduct testing at our school sites, we have assigned ACT testing days and virtual learning days to each grade level on April 9th and 10th.  On assigned testing days, students must attend school.  On virtual learning days, students will not attend school on campus.  Please mark your calendars!
April 9th - 
Testing Day:  All 11th graders (ACT) and select 12th graders (ACT)
Virtual Learning Day:  9th and 10th graders
Note:  12th graders scheduled for ACT testing will be notified by the school.  
April 10th - 
ACT Testing Day:  All 9th graders (Pre-ACT) and all 10th graders (ACT)
Virtual Learning Day:  11th and 12th graders
We also offered ACT vouchers this year to our 12th graders who wished to increase their ACT scores!  The vouchers cover the cost of a Saturday ACT testing session this year.  There are still some vouchers available for seniors who have not yet claimed one.  Check your student email account for the link to request a voucher.  For more information, contact Bossier Schools Supervisor of Accountability & Assessment, Lisa Burns, at
