The PLAN® program helps 10th graders build a solid foundation for future academic and career success and provides information needed to address school districts' high-priority issues. It is a comprehensive guidance resource that helps students measure their current academic development, explore career/training options, and make plans for the remaining years of high school and post-graduation years.
PLAN can help all students—those who are college-bound as well as those who are likely to enter the workforce directly after high school.
As a "pre-ACT" test, PLAN is a powerful predictor of success on the ACT. At the same time, many schools recognize the importance of PLAN testing for all students, as it focuses attention on both career preparation and improving academic achievement.
Hazelwood West administers the PLAN test to all 10th grade students in September or October of their 10th grade year. For more information about the PLAN test visit, http://www.act.org/path/parent/tests/plan.html
