10 Block Schedule Information
Students at Simonsen, JCHS & NCC will see a new schedule next school year, providing the opportunity to enroll in more classes. Teachers were able to vote on three new schedules - 83% of teachers at those buildings preferred this option. Here's a view of the schedule. And check out the FAQs about this change here.  
Free ACT Test (and reporting) for all current juniors:
On Tuesday, April 28th, during the school day, every junior enrolled in Jefferson City Public Schools will take the ACT as part of a new statewide assessment effort. There will be no cost to students or families for this test. We're letting you know this now, as some families might choose to forgo paying for their junior to take the ACT in the upcoming months since this free test will be offered. The test results can be sent to up to 4 institutions for free.  All junior students will be required to take this ACT on April 28th, even if they have previously taken the exam. If you have any questions, please contact your student's guidance counselor. 
Day of Testing:  
On April 28th, in efforts for statewide assessment efforts, all 10 - 11th grade students will be testing.  Juniors will take the ACT and sophomores will take the ASPIRE test.  Our seniors will take part in a day of relationship and team building activities during what we are calling "The Last Recess".  More information will come to parents and students of seniors as we get closer to April 28th.
