From the Office of Catholic Schools – ACT Aspire 2019 Summative Test Results
This year’s ACT Aspire summative results will be available for school staffs on the ACT Aspire portal mid-late July 2019. ACT Aspire used new test forms this year. The use of new forms requires ACT to “equate” raw scores to scale scores and national norms. Due to this equating process, results will be available to schools in July. Please make sure to communicate this information to your school community. ACT cannot score tests just for Archdiocesan schools; it must score all tests administered nationally in the spring to create national norms.

Options that have proven successful for SJS families are Dennis Uniform and Lands End. Only Dennis carries the SJS uniform plaid items. Dennis has closed its Mount Prospect store. The nearest brick and mortar store is in Chicago just of the Kennedy expressway on Higgins at Harlem. Sample items are available in the SJS office for sizing purposes for online ordering.
A change to the uniform policy for 2019-2020— Fifth grade girls will have the option of wearing the navy blue shirt with the plaid skort.
