All 11th grade students will take the ACT on Wednesday, February 20 during the school day. To prepare for this test, we encourage students to sign up for free online tutorials via ACT Academy which can be accessed at the link below:
The school will also offer ACT Boot Camp sessions for all 11th grade students during the week of February 11-15. All students scheduled to test on February 20 will particpate in a day-long ACT review session which will focus on skills and test-taking strategies such as time management. Results show that students who particpate in ACT Boot Camp prior to testing increase their scores significantly. More information to come!
The Lee County Board of Education voted — at its regularly scheduled meeting on January 8, 2019 — to extend the school day by 15 minutes beginning Tuesday, January 22, 2019 so as to have extra instructional time built up in case of future inclement weather for the 2018-19 school year.
The Board will revisit the additional 15 minutes at its regularly scheduled February and March meetings to gauge whether the additional time is still needed. The Board also voted to make March 22, 2019 — originally a teacher workday — a full instructional day of school for students.
The schedule at Southern Lee is now from 8:00 to 3:15 beginning January 22, 2019 for students.
