ACT Workshop:
Making Meaningful Connections: College and Career Readiness in Minnesota

Join Jeremy Willey, ACT Account Executive for Minnesota, for an opportunity to learn more about how World’s Best Workforce (WBWF) legislation, college and career readiness, and The ACT are connected.

This FREE workshop will provide so many great ideas!

Students across Minnesota take The ACT® in various ways, and many have the opportunity to take the PreACT®. This workshop will highlight the connections between World’s Best Workforce legislation, college and career readiness standards and the ACT focusing on what these connections mean for students in your school and/or district.

Participants will engage in a variety of activities, learning experiences, and discussions designed to broaden their overall understanding of ACT offerings, how to utilize various data that can impact student decision-making, and how to directly apply information learned to inform conversations/efforts with students and families to make a positive impact.

Participants will…
  • Make connections between World’s Best Workforce (WBWF), college and career readiness and The ACT®
  • Learn about potential applications of ACT tools to specifically inform their work
  • Establish various ways in which data can be utilized to directly benefit students
  • Engage in meaningful conversations with colleagues across Minnesota
  • Examine lived experiences, equity considerations and student-centered decision-making
This FREE workshop is ideal for counselors, testing coordinators, school administrators, district administrators, and superintendents looking for ways to make a positive impact on results related to World’s Best Workforce while simultaneously, and positively, impacting the lived experiences for students as they prepare for life beyond Pre-K-12 education.

Light refreshments will be provided prior to the presentation.
