Snow-related school opening delays Tuesday could affect hundreds of area high school juniors’ ability to take a state-required test used for college admission purposes.

At least two school districts in the region already plan to request a makeup day for their students to take the American Achievement Test, or ACT.

Because the Currituck County Schools has already announced a three-hour delay to the school day on Tuesday, district officials are requesting a makeup date for Currituck’s 260-some 11th-graders who are scheduled to take the ACT, Assistant Superintendent Sandy Kinzel said.

Similarly, the Perquimans County Schools has also postponed administration of the ACT exam to juniors at the county high school. A makeup date for the test will be announced later in the week, a school official said.

Other area school districts are also likely to request makeup dates for the ACT exam, which every junior enrolled in a North Carolina public high school is required to take.

If Camden students are not able to start school by 9 a.m. on Tuesday, they will take the test on an alternate date set by ACT exam administrators, Camden County Schools Superintendent Melvin Hawkins said. That date is Tuesday, March 18, Hawkins said. Camden schools have already announced a two-hour delay to the start of school on Tuesday.

High school juniors at John A. Holmes High School in Edenton will similarly try to start the ACT exam by 9 a.m. If they’re unable to because of the start of school is delayed, Holmes’ 182 juniors will take the test on March 18, school spokeswoman Michelle Maddox said.

A weather delay is also expected to affect 334 juniors enrolled at Pasquotank and Northeastern high schools and at H.L. Trigg Community School. March 18 also would be the makeup date if students aren’t able to start the ACT exam by 9 a.m. Tuesday, school spokeswoman Angela Noblitt said. The Elizabeth City-Pasquotank district also has announced a two-hour delay to the start of school on Tuesday.

The National Weather Service has issued a weather advisory for the Albemarle region that will remain in effect until midnight tonight. The weather service is calling for a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain to start early this afternoon, turning to snow and sleet this afternoon and evening. Accumulations of between 1 and 2 inches of snow and sleet are expected.
