If you were registered to take the ACT at Assumption on Saturday, April 4, at Assumption, you should have already received a notification from ACT concerning the plan to reschedule your test date to the June or July test dates. There will not be testing this summer at Assumption due to several factors which include lack of air conditioning and inappropriate seating arrangements available in the few rooms that we could use.
Please check your ACT account actstudent.org to see if you received communications if you are uncertain.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation at this stressful time.

Iowa Youth Congress is a youth program consisting of up to 100 students, modeled after the Iowa House of Representatives. Youth between the ages of 14 and 18 are eligible. Originally established in 2006, IYC is a year-long program which begins each July. The program provides students the knowledge, abilities, and direction to advocate and enact change in their communities, and at the state-level. IYC brings students together from across the state to discuss issues that affect today’s youth. In addition, IYC members draft positions on youth issues, participate in an annual Mock Congress event, communicate their positions to legislators, and engage in service activities. For additional information about IYC please contact Claire Yocom (Claire.Yocom@iowa.gov) or visit the following website: https://humanrights.iowa.gov/cas/iowa-youth-congress
The State of Iowa Youth Advisory Council accepts a maximum of 21 youth who serve two-year terms beginning in July. Youth between the ages of 14 and 21 are eligible. Originally established in 2001, SIYAC was formalized in Iowa Code in 2009 as an avenue for youth to inform state leaders and local communities on issues important to young people. Members meet quarterly to identify issues affecting youth, discuss community needs, form partnerships to meet those needs, draft positions on youth issues, communicate those positions to legislators, and plan and conduct service activities. In addition, SIYAC members participate in Iowa Collaboration for Youth Development (ICYD) Council meetings. The ICYD Council oversees the activities of SIYAC and seeks input from these youth leaders in the development of more effective state-wide policies, practices, and programs. SIYAC members also carry out two service projects, one in their respective communities and one statewide. For additional information about SIYAC please contact Reeva Neighbors (Reeva.Neighbors@iowa.gov) or visit the following website: https://humanrights.iowa.gov/cas/siyac
