Due to increased college admission requirements and a 20-year flat-lined trend in ACT scores, it is imperative for education leaders across the nation to implement effective strategies to increase ACT composite scores.

Findings based upon questionnaires can provide a description of the actions that principals report taking to increase composite ACT school scores.
