ACT test registration deadline approaches

College-bound high school students who want to take the ACT Assessment have two chances to register before the Oct. 26 test date. The postmark registration deadline is Sept. 20. The late registration deadline is Oct. 4 -- an addition fee is required for late registration. The test fee is $25. Students can find more information from their high school counselor or online at

Virtually all colleges and universities in the country accept ACT scores. The scores are considered for admissions and course placement, as are several other factors, including high school grade point average, college prep courses taken in high school, extracurricular activities, personal background and other information.

The ACT Assessment is an achievement test that measures a student's academic skills in four subject areas: English, reading, mathematics and science. It is not an aptitude test. The ACT Web site has helpful information, including sample test questions and the opportunity to order test prep materials. Students also may register for the test online.

Phi Delta Kappa offers classroom money

The area chapter of Phi Delta Kappa will sponsor a drawing for public school teachers to win money for their classrooms. The $200 prize is available to any Kenai Peninsula public educator assigned to a classroom from kindergarten through college. Attend the PDK ice cream social from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Sept. 18 at the Kenai River Center across from Soldotna Municipal Airport on Funny River Road and enter the cash drawing. Funds will be available for use in classroom projects, field trips or activities involving families. There is no charge for the ice cream social or the drawing, and PDK membership is not required to enter.
