Practice ACT Message from Principal Gruetzmacher

Dear BC Junior Class and Parents:

I hope that all is well. In preparation for the February 27th (ACT) and February 28th (ACT Workkeys) Statewide ACT, all BC Juniors on January 3, 2018, will participate in the Practice ACT during blocks 1 through 2 in the large gym. No registration is needed for the Practice ACT or the Statewide ACT.

Throughout the month of February students will have an opportunity to attend ACT prep sessions during Lancer block. Students will have the option to attend sessions that reflect their needs based on the results of the practice test scores. More information will follow about the logistics for the ACT and for prep sessions dates. We hope that these prep opportunities will go a long way in helping student prepare for the state-wide ACT (taken at BCHS) on February 27 and February 28.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks and take care.


Brett J. Gruetzmacher-Proud Principal

Wisconsin Forward

During the 2015-16 school year, Wisconsin rolled out a new assessment called the Wisconsin Forward Exam. The Exam is for Brookfield Central 10th Graders only and is designed to gauge how well students are doing in relation to the Wisconsin Academic Standards. These standards outline what students should know and be able to do in order to be college and career ready. The Forward Exam is administered online in the spring of each school year.

Civics Exam

Wisconsin state law (Wis.Stats. 118.33(1m)(a)1) requires all school districts to give a 100 question civics exam to all students beginning with the Graduating Class of 2017. The questions are very specific: they are the exact 100 questions that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) utilizes for the US citizenship test. Students must answer 65 questions correctly in order to meet the graduation requirement. The Civics exam is a 100 question, multiple choice assessment (as administered in Elmbrook), that are the exact 100 questions from the US Naturalization Test.
