College or Career Readiness Assessment
The Juneau School District provides funding for all students to take a College- or Career-Readiness Assessment (CCRA). The approved career-readiness assessment is Workkeys; the approved college- readiness assessments are the ACT or the SAT. Students choose which assessment best fits their post-secondary path.
The Juneau School District will pay for one administration of one College- or Career-Readiness Assessment (CCRA) per student while the student is in grade 11. High school students may take the assessment during the scheduled school day(s) of administration.
The following websites provide parent information for each assessment:
