From April 5th through May 3rd, part of the enrollment process will require accounts for grades 3-8 and 10 to be reviewed to identify if your student needs to participate in any upcoming testing. Once all enrollment tasks have been completed, students will briefly move to a status of “in review” at which point a member of the Arkansas Connections Academy staff will review the account to determine if testing is needed. If your student needs to participate in testing, you will be contacted by the school. If not, your student will be released and moved to Confirmation of Enrollment. The review process may take up to 24 hours.
