Jackson School District assistant superintendent Matt Lacy recommended to the board of education Tuesday to pay to allow each enrolled junior at Jackson High School the opportunity to take the ACT once. Reports from the Southeast Missourian say that during the regular school board meeting on Tuesday, Lacy requested $18,000 to cover the cost of assessment, which he said would be $45 per student. The Notion Passed Unanimously. Since Gov. Greitens $4 million dollar education cut, several Missouri school districts have announced they would pick up the tab for juniors taking the ACT. The fee for the ACT is $46, or $62.50 with the optional writing test.
