UPDATE ON AP AND SAT
Here is news from CollegeBoard regarding AP and SAT
Currently, the next SAT is scheduled for the first weekend of June. We'll make a decision about whether we can safely hold that administration as soon as it is feasible, given the evolving public health situation.
- We'll add U.S. and international test administrations in response to canceled administrations. We'll be flexible in making the SAT available in school and out of school as soon as the public health situation allows. We're looking at a range of creative solutions to address increased demand and are in direct conversations with states and districts about School Day administrations. Throughout, we'll continue to place a special focus on students with fee waivers and those with accommodations.
- Students can stay sharp and get personalized practice support online for free with Khan Academy.
- If schools cannot reopen this fall, we're pursuing innovative means to ensure all students can still take the SAT in the fall. We'll provide updates about those plans if they become necessary.
We're working closely with our members in higher education to minimize the disruption of SAT administration cancellations this spring and to encourage flexibility in the college admissions process whenever possible. We're heartened by those institutions that have already made clear, calming statements that emphasize flexibility in admissions at this time—encouraging students to submit as much information as they can, and reassuring applicants that they will not be disadvantaged should they have to submit Pass/Fail grades for the spring, have incomplete extracurricular profiles, or miss a testing deadline.
A VIDEO RESOURCE FROM STUDENT SERVICES
From Mr. Q, School Counselor: When children learn or hear about something big or bad happening, their brains gets busy trying to make sense. Our brains then go on high alert, which prepares our body to respond. However, our brains go on high alert for the wrong reasons, and it can cause unnecessary fear or anxiety that can be harmful. This presentation explains how we can calm our brains.
