  • PSAT - Fall 2021

    Posted by Chelsea Drey on 8/15/2021

    Dear Sophomore and Junior Students, Parents, and Guardians,

    Your teen has the opportunity to take the PSAT/NMSQT at school on Wednesday, October 13th, 2021. This test gives your student an opportunity to take the next step to succeed in college. 

    Students can:

    1. Connect to scholarships. The PSAT 10 connects you to our scholarship partners, who offer over $220 million annually* in scholarships to qualified low-income and minority students. Students should say “yes” to Student Search Service® on the day of the test so that scholarship partners can find them.
    2. Get free, personalized SAT practice. The PSAT/NMSQT is great preparation for the SAT®. Your teen’s score even unlocks a personalized SAT study plan on Khan Academy®. It’s completely free. Students simply go to satpractice.org, create an account, and link their College Board and Khan Academy accounts to get a study plan based on their test results.
    3. Receive AP course recommendations. Student score reports will suggest AP® courses that are a great match for them. AP can give your teen an edge in the admission process and allows them to earn college credit while in high school, which could save time and money in college.

    The test opportunity is:

    • Available to 10th and 11th Graders
    • Costs $20

    Register online through this Google Form through Monday, August 23rd. Exams will be ordered only for those students who pre-register.

    Questions? To learn more about the PSAT/NMSQT, we invite you to visit our school website at fusd1.org/CHSPSAT.

  • ACT Update

    Posted by Chelsea Drey on 3/16/2021

    Opportunity to Take the ACT® Test for Free

    The Flagstaff Unified School District is paying for all Junior students to take the ACT® test at school, during the school day, on April 6th, 2021, to assist students as they prepare for their future after high school. There is no cost to you for this administration.

    Benefits of Taking the ACT

    The ACT includes multiple-choice tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science. It matches well with the state’s education standards, measures what is learned in high school, and will provide a gauge of academic readiness for college classes. Additionally, the results may be used when exploring college majors, careers, and life goals.

    Completing Non-Test Information (before test day)

    Students will receive a Taking the ACT booklet in their Home Room Canvas shell, which includes a checklist for taking the ACT, information about sending and receiving scores, testing rules, and policies, and non-test questions. Students are required to provide identifying information—name (first, last, middle initial), date of birth, and mailing address—for ACT to generate and deliver score reports. Questions about college and career interests are optional and include high school course/grade information, a Student Profile Section, and an Interest Inventory section. Students are encouraged to complete the optional sections to receive information on their score reports that is helpful for college and career planning, such as suggested college majors and occupations to consider. Refer to the Taking the ACT if you would like to see what is asked. A session for examinees to complete identifying information and non-test questions will be held on March 22nd, 2021 or: Students will receive instructions to complete identifying information and non-test questions in MyACT on their own.

    Participation in EOS

    One of the optional non-test information questions is to participate in the free Educational Opportunity Service (EOS) from ACT, which allows colleges, universities, financial aid and scholarship agencies, and other educational programs to provide information to students. ACT research shows that participating in EOS benefits students by giving them greater access to information about colleges and programs of study, expanding their possibilities for future success.

    Student Information Shared with Organizations Participating in EOS

    • Name, mailing address, email address, gender, date of birth, racial/ethnic background
    • Gender, date of birth, racial/ethnic background
    • High school, year of high school graduation, intended college major, and occupational choice
    • Information provided in the Student Profile Section, the ACT test score range

    All organizations participating in EOS have agreed to use this information only for the purpose of sharing information about their educational, scholarship, or financial aid programs with students. This information is used to provide targeted information to students and will not be shared with state or district officials.

    Opting out of EOS

    This service may be stopped at any time by contacting ACT at 319.337.1350 or completing this form: https://www.act.org/content/act/en/products-and-services/the-act/opting-out-of-eos.html.

  • Civics Update

    Posted by Chelsea Drey on 3/16/2021

    March 16th, 2021

    Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

    In 2015, the Arizona Department of Education signed into law a graduation requirement stating that in order to earn a high school diploma in Arizona, students must pass a 100 question civics exam with at least 60% proficiency.

    Students at Coconino High School who have not yet passed the Civics exam will take the exam on March 25th, 2021 during homeroom. Students may take the Civics exam an unlimited number of times until they pass but we will only schedule 3 opportunities a year. To help prepare students for this test, there are study guides in the CHS Home Room canvas courses and on the CHS website.

    Civics test schedule for March 25th:


    Students at School

    Students at Home

    March 25th

    During Home Room

    Students at school will test in their Home Room classes since Thursday is a Study Hall for all Home Room periods. If students need extended time, they are to report to room 311 at the end of the Home Room period.

    Students at home will check in with their Home Room teacher for attendance and then proceed to take the Civics test. If they need extended time, they should check in with their 6th-period teacher and then continue their Civics test.

    By the end of March, you will be able to see your student’s score reflected on their StudentVUE under Course History, Graduation Status. The last test opportunity for the 2020-2021 school year is scheduled for April 22nd.

    If you have any questions about the new Civics exam graduation requirement please visit http://www.fusd1.org/chstesting. You can also visit http://www.uscis.gov/citizenship/learners/study-test/study-materials-civics-test to find study guides and practice exams for the Civics test.

    Please address any questions regarding the CHS Testing Coordinator, Chelsea Drey.
