Dear J.l. Case family,

I am writing to you today to share some exciting news! The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has approved a waiver  allowing Racine Unified School District to adjust our 2017-2018  calendar to add five {5) ACT prep days.

Our high school juniors  will have the opportunity to take an ACT practice  test on Tuesday, Oct. 31and then  participate in four  (4) ACT prep sessions throughout the next several months.

Our school year calendar  will adjust  as follows.

  • Tuesday, Oct. 31: Freshmen, sophomores and seniors will not have school. Only juniors  will report to school at the normal time  for ACT Prep.
  • Tuesday, Nov. 7: 90-minute late start for freshmen, sophomores and seniors. Juniors will report to school at the regularly scheduled start time.
  • Tuesday, Dec. 12:  90-minute late start  for freshmen, sophomores and seniors. Juniors will report to school at the regularly scheduled start time.
  • Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018: 90-minute late start  for freshmen, sophomores and seniors. Juniors will report to school at the regularly scheduled start time.
  • Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018: 90-minute late start for freshmen, sophomores and seniors. Juniors will report to school at the regularly scheduled  start time.

Transportation will be provided for all students regardless  of start time.

This is a great opportunity for our junior students to build the skills necessary to excel on the ACT test in February. Our ACT scores are a significant factor in our On-Track and Postsecondary  Readiness portion ofthe District's and school's state  report card and will help our student's graduate career and/or college ready!

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate  to contact  me via email at Nicholas.Debaker@rusd.org or by phone  at 262-619-4243. I appreciate your continued support.

Sincerely,

Nicholas DeBaker
