The registration deadline has been extended a few days for fall Motlow classes being offered at the county complex in Smithville starting August 27, according to County Mayor Mike Foster.

Foster told WJLE Friday that some classes are just a few students short of being able to make.

Meanwhile, high school students planning on taking the ACT this fall are encouraged to prepare for the test with a course offered at five Motlow College locations in Moore County, Fayetteville, McMinnville, Sparta and Smithville. The ACT Prep class focuses on four areas of the ACT: English, mathematics, reading and science. Emphasis will be on test-taking skills, logical analysis and pacing oneself. Practice tests in each of the four areas will be administered during the course and at the conclusion.

The cost of the class is $60 and students will also need to purchase a textbook for $30.95. The textbook will only be available the first night of class. A check made payable to Motlow College Bookstore or cash in the exact amount will be required.

Registration forms can be obtained online at . Separate forms are available for each testing location. Completed forms are to be mailed or faxed to the address indicated on the registration form. Registration is not complete until payment has been received.

The Motlow College Smithville Teaching Site will offer the course on Thursdays, September 13, 20, 27, October 4, and 11, 2012, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. Sheila Gann will be the instructor. The course is limited to 30 students and the deadline to register is Sept. 7 at 4:30 p.m.

The classes are designed to prepare students for the national ACT test date of October 27, 2012. Taking the prep class does NOT register a student to sit for the actual ACT. Students must register separately with ACT to take the national exam; the deadline to register is March 9. Information about how to register for the test can be obtained at .
