SANFORD-For the first time ever, nearly all public and charter school 11th graders will be required to take the ACT college entrance exam.  Local school officials say the ACT is a curriculum and standards-based educational and career planning tool that assesses students’ academic readiness for college.  In December 2011. the State Board of Education approved the ACT to become a part of North Carolina’s new accountability model for high schools that will be implemented statewide in 2012-13.
