Important: Information Update about 2018-2019 calendar
Westside Community Schools has received important information from the Nebraska Department of Education regarding ACT state testing. Districts are given two options for administering the state assessment:
- Option 1: Online state testing in the Spring of 2019 will take place April 2 – April 4 and April 9- April 11, 2019.
- Option 2: Paper/Pencil state testing will take place April 2, 2019.
Currently, Westside Spring Break is scheduled for April 1 – 5, 2019. At this point in time, the ACT state testing window for the 2018-2019 school year coincides with Westside Community Schools’ April 2019 Spring Break.
If you have a student who will be a junior in the 2018/2019 school year, your child will be taking the ACT state assessment in the Spring of 2019. We realize that this maybe a hardship for your family, but we encourage you to delay finalization of or change travel plans you may be making for that period of time. A final determination on whether Westside Community Schools will change the 2018-2019 schedule will made after the April 2018 state test.
