Any of your kiddos preparing to take the ACT or SAT? Have they or will they take a class to prepare? I know they're changing some of the 'rules' for testing. When my boys were in high school here in IL the ACT was mandatory testing for juniors about this time of year. They tested them at the school andt he rest of the non-junior students didn't attend that day. Of course they were able to re-take if they chose to at a local testing site. My boys both just took it once at the school and both did well. I bought the study books and made them take a practice test but didn't send them to any ACT prep classes.
