Important Policy Change at State:
For the 2017-2018 School year, all competitors that miss the orientation and written examination will receive a 5% penalty of possible points during district and state conference. After this school year, all SkillsUSA knowledge tests will be scored for a possible 50 out of 1,000 points instead of a tie breaker only. Please use this year as a transition to begin preparing for the SkillsUSA knowledge test. This past year, a student won a competition that missed the orientation and the board wanted to update the policy to make it more fair for those that are on time.
