Your student's ACT Aspire Student Score Reports have
been sent to your local schools.
The ACT Aspire is a standards-based system of assessments to
monitor progress toward college and career readiness from grade 3 through early
high school, connecting each grade level to the next. This assessment
helps close the gap between the skills students learn in school and the
skills they need to succeed in their academic career and beyond.
Birmingham City Schools is using the ACT Aspire assessment results
to measure our students’ academic progress as well as to help schools and
the district identify areas of strength and areas of growth.
We are aware that this is only one measure of student
progress; however, we are using recently released scores to implement programs
that provide professional development for our staff and that will support
student achievement in every school. We are committed and dedicated to
the development of every student’s academic success.
Each school will hold ACT Aspire Data Meetings for parents
between August 24th and September 4th.
Please contact your local
school to receive your student's individual report
and for specific meeting dates.
