Jumpstart ACT Test Prep (Jumpstart), in partnership with the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE), is announcing pilot school selections for the 2022-23 school year.
The program is aimed at helping public high school students increase ACT (juniors) and ACT WorkKeys (seniors) performance and continued Jumpstart efficacy research that has previously demonstrated substantial gains over prior best scores. This year’s selected cohort of public high schools will receive support, resources, and programmatic guidance to further improve their school’s performance. Selected schools were randomly drawn by a third party from the remaining pool of applicants from last year’s application process. Complete details can be found: https://jumpstarttestprep.com/pilot/2022-2023-mississippi-pilot-act-research
Jumpstart Test Prep will meet to discuss program and efficacy research with any interested district or school, regardless of their selection for either pilot. For more information regarding the Jumpstart Test Prep review program, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
