11th Grade ACT Test
Registration Deadline
On Tuesday, April 7, 2020, the statewide ACT Assessment
(without writing) will be administered at EHS to
11 th grade students during the school day. Online registration
and payment are required to take the test. 
Regular classes will NOT be in session on this day due to ACT testing.

The deadline to register for the statewide ACT Test administered at EHS is Friday, January 31, 2020.

The district is not able to mandate all students take the ACT; however, we are encouraging all students to take advantage of this locally administered testing opportunity. Many students will use this to obtain their first college readiness test score or improve on their existing scores. Please note that this is the statewide ACT test offered during the school day. While the test itself is the same as the National ACT test offered on various Saturdays throughout the year, the registration process is different. Students do NOT register through the ACT website; rather, registration is done through the school.

To register for the exam, please click on the following link: 

The cost of the exam is $46 and will be added to your student’s Infinite Campus account on Monday, February 3, 2020 . To pay the fee, please log in your Infinite Campus account.  Click this link for a tutorial on how to pay the fee in Infinite Campus. The deadline to register for the ACT is Friday, January 31, 2020. Students in need of financial support for the testing fee should fill out the ACT Fee Waiver Form and turn it in to Assistant Principal Jenn Carter in the Main Office. Students do not register directly with ACT for this assessment; all registration will be handled by EHS staff. Students need to sign up using the link provided. Testing accommodations will be submitted by EHS staff for students who qualify to test with approved accommodations.

The ACT test scores will provide you with information about your student’s progress toward college readiness and is widely used by colleges in making decisions about admission. Students who take the ACT will be able to share their ACT scores with up to four colleges or universities as included in the exam fee. Additional colleges and universities can receive the scores for an additional charge.  PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE NOT OFFERING THE WRITING PORTION OF THE ACT ASSESSMENT.

If you have any questions regarding the ACT administration, please feel free to contact Jennifer.Carter@edinaschools.org.
9th Grade Practice ACT Test
Registration Deadline
On April 7, 2020, EHS will administer a Practice ACT exam to 9 th grade students during the school day. Students will be released from school at 1:16 pm upon completion of the exam. Due to the Statewide ACT exam for 11th grade students, regular classes will not be in session at EHS.

The deadline to register for the Practice ACT Test is
Friday, January 31, 2020

The district is not able to mandate all students take the Practice ACT; however, we are encouraging all students to take advantage of this locally administered testing opportunity. This will be an excellent opportunity for 9 th graders to experience college readiness testing in preparation for future college entrance exams.  
To register for the exam, please click on the link below.


The exam will be offered at no cost. The deadline to register for the Practice ACT is Friday, January 31, 2020. Families need to sign up using the link provided. While there is no cost associated with the exam, students MUST be registered or they will not be allowed to test. We will only have sufficient exams for those who have registered.  
Practice ACT test scores will be reviewed in a session with the Princeton Review during Advisory. In this session, students will be provided with information about their progress toward college readiness. The ACT is widely used by colleges in making decisions about admission. Please note that the Practice ACT is very similar to the actual ACT that most juniors take. The assessment is not modified or changed to
accommodate 9 th grade curriculum. Additionally, because EHS is offering the statewide ACT to juniors at the same time, our resources
are limited and we will NOT be able to offer testing accommodations for those students on an IEP or 504 plan.

If you have any questions regarding the Practice ACT administration, please feel free to contact Jeffrey.Marshall@edinaschools.org.

Parents have a huge role to play in violence prevention. Parents have asked for resources to make loaded conversations around sexual violence prevention manageable and empowering. This presentation answers that request by providing tools for parents on teaching consent and empathy to children and teens using positive moments of connection. We will spend some time on the WHY, but most of the time will be spent on the HOW so that parents leave feeling equipped and empowered to support their kids in a lasting way.

Teacher Office Hours for Students
Hello Edina students and families,

As we look to finish our 1st semester of the 2019-20 school year and head into the 2nd half, we wanted to remind you that all teachers at Edina High School offer at least 3 hours of office time each week for students to access additional help and support in their classes. Teachers typically publish their office hours to students at the beginning of each semester, and they can often be found on teachers’ Schoology pages.

It is important to note, however, that teachers’ office hours are designed for STUDENTS to meet with teachers. It is not a time for parents to come in to try to meet with teachers regarding their student’s progress in the class. We ask that parents contact teachers directly via e-mail or voicemail if they have any concerns or questions or want to set up a time to meet.

Thanks for your help and understanding in this matter as we want teachers to have the ability to work directly with students during this time.
