Lee’s Summit R-7 to Fund ACT college-Entrance Exams For All High-School Juniors

The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District recently announced that the district will be covering the cost of ACT college-entrance testing for high-school juniors during spring 2018. In the past, Missouri state government provided funding for all juniors to take the ACT during the spring at no cost to the student or his/her school district.

With the state’s announcement that state funding would end during 2017-18, district officials made the decision to pick up the cost, estimated at $74,000, for this year. Families with Lee’s Summit R-7 high-school juniors received an e-mail during late August informing them of the district’s commitment to funding the ACT college-entrance test.
