SAT School Day (SAT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 9) scheduled for Tuesday, April 14 and the Illinois Science Assessment (all juniors) scheduled for the week of April 20 have been waived for this school year. ISBE submitted a request to waive assessments for the 2019-2020 school year and the U.S. Department of Education approved their request.
We know that the free SAT provided by the state is the only opportunity many students get to take a college entrance exam. ISBE is working with the College Board on developing options to allow current junior students to take the SAT in the fall. ISBE hopes to have more information on these options by the end of April. Once more information is known, we will be sure to share it with our OTHS families.
