Junior SAT Update and Other Important Information – 3/17/20

March 17, 2020

Dear Juniors and Parents/Guardians,

Good morning,

The College Process remains unchanged for our junior class. At this point, all juniors should have joined the Guidance Classroom. The invite to join the Guidance Classroom was sent by Mr. Manta and is in your Gmail account.

Once you have joined, you can view your assignments in ​Classwork​. As a reminder, your College Essay​ assignment is due May 1st​.

Although the College Board has announced the cancelation of its May Test Administration, you are strongly encouraged to continue to prep for this very important exam. You all have access to the ​Method Test Program (included in your Back to School packet and your College Planning Guide) and should prep daily. Although difficult, now is a good time to take advantage of the resources such as the Method Test Prep and Khan Academy to keep you sharp and ready. Below is the recent update from College Board regarding SAT Administrations.

Mrs. Kelleher
Director of Guidance

SAT Update from College Board (www.collegeboard.org)

March and May SAT Administrations

In response to the rapidly evolving situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19), College Board is canceling the May 2, 2020 SAT administration. Makeup exams for the March 14 administration (scheduled for March 28) are ​also canceled. In the coming days, College Board will share additional information and details directly with registered students and test centers.

Future Testing Opportunities

College Board will provide future additional SAT testing opportunities for students as soon as possible in place of canceled administrations. We have not yet canceled the June 6, 2020 SAT administration and will continue to assess its status, with the health and safety of students and educators as our top priority.

Resources and Support

To help students keep their college readiness skills sharp when many schools are closed, College Board and Khan Academy will continue to provide free resources online, including full-length practice tests and personalized learning tools.
