Due to the cancelation of school on March 3, the ACT test, which was to be administered on this day, has been postponed to March 17th. That test will be administered here on the Bismarck-Henning campus. Students who were to receive accommodations on the test will be taking those tests sometime between March 4th and March 17th. Those testing days will be communicated to students as those schedules are being worked out. This change in ACT . . .
