Important ACT Testing Information

Beginning in spring 2015, the ACT test will be used as a statewide assessment in South Carolina to meet state and federal accountability requirements. With the exception of students who are eligible for alternate assessments, the ACT must be administered to all students in the eleventh grade, including students with disabilities. Eleventh-grade students are defined as students in the third year of high school after their initial enrollment in the ninth grade.

CHS, Your Name (first and last)

One of the IT staff members will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

Be sure to periodically check your email.   You will receive updates as the problem is fixed and to let you know when it’s ready to be picked up.

The IT Office is in Room F-5.


How to sign-in to email:

You have to check your email through Office 365.  This is how:

1.      Login to your computer with your first initial, last name, and the last 4 digits of your student ID number.  You set up your password this year when you logged on to a computer for the first time.  (If you haven’t logged in yet, your password is password, and you have to change it right away.)

2.      Click on the desktop icon for SIGN IN TO OFFICE 365 or open an internet browser (Chrome/Firefox, or Internet Explorer) and go to   www.outlook.office365.com  .

3.      You will login with your regular username (first initial, last name, and last 4 digits of your student ID number) but you must add   @chester.k12.sc.us   after your 4 digits.  John Doe’s log in would look like this:  jdoe4321@chester.k12.sc.us  .  This is also your email address, if you want to give it to someone.  Remember, when you graduate or leave Chester County School District, this account will no longer exist, so use it only for school-type stuff.  Use your Microsoft/gmail/yahoo accts for everything else.

4.      Your password is the same password you use when you log on to the network at school.  Same password for the network and for Office 365.
