SAT School Day Parent Letter

  • Dear Parent or Guardian of 12th Grade Student,

    The purpose of this letter is to inform you that your student will take the SAT on the OCTOBER 14th SAT School Day at 7:30am.

    This test is only offered on-campus in-person with no virtual option. All students will be expected to follow safety and social distancing procedures when scheduled to test on campus. These safety procedures include students wearing face coverings before, during and after testing. Students are also expected to bring their own materials needed for testing.

     

    Student Brought Materials: #2 pencil, scientific or graphing calculator

     

    Students doing digital learning at home are required to come on campus and test.

     

    The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that’s accepted at all U.S. colleges. The SAT measures the reading, writing, and math skills that students are learning in high school. It lets students show that they have the knowledge they need to succeed in college and career. The following are other key benefits of participating in the SAT School Day.

    · Testing on a school day does not interfere with weekend work or family obligations.

    · Students test in a familiar location with staff they know which may reduce stress associated with testing.

    · Students who have been struggling academically are provided with another opportunity to demonstrate their college readiness to universities.

    · Students who take the SAT can use College Board programs that support college access, including college application fee waivers and four free score sends.

    · Students can access Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy® and career planning resources at Roadtrip Nation.

     

    Additionally, students can also meet Florida Grade 10 English Language Arts and Algebra 1 End-of-Course Assessment graduation requirements if concordant or comparative reading and math scores are achieved. More information related to statewide assessment graduation requirements is available at http://fldoe.org/academics.

    For additional information, including the calculator policy (cell phones are not permitted), practice tests and sample questions regarding this assessment, please refer to the SAT School Day Student Guide or visit the CollegeBoard website at http://collegeboard.org.
