ACT Update (3/16/20)


ACT has decided to reschedule the April 4, 2020 National ACT® test date to our June 13 and July 18 test dates in response to concerns regarding the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

We will be in contact with you in the days ahead as we work to plan for June and July, where we will need to build capacity to accommodate April examinees.

The mission of the Lexington School District Counseling Department is to provide a proactive, comprehensive, and developmentally appropriate program to address students' academic and career goals in addition to supporting their personal and social emotional needs.


A student and family’s privacy is very important.  All information shared with a counselor will remain confidential unless a student shares a plan to harm him or herself or someone else or there is suspicion a student may be a victim of abuse or neglect. In these situations, we are required by law to report this information to parents and/or to appropriate agencies.

Counselors may share information with school personnel with parent or student permission.
