Attention 10th or 11th grade parents and students who need to apply for extended time on standarized exams:
(PSAT, SAT, AP, and ACT),
We have been reminded by College Board and ACT testing centers that Eligibility Form deadlines for test accommodations based on disability are due to the testing center several weeks prior to the intended test date. In order for the Guidance Office and the testing centers to process the applications, Eligibility Forms and required documentation must be completed and submitted to the Guidance Office at least 8 weeks (2 months) prior to the intended testing date. All required documentation to be submitted to the Guidance Office (which is then sent to the testing centers) must be in the Guidance Office at the time the student submits the Eligibility Form. All details about what documentation is required can be located in the Instructions for Completing the Student Eligibility Form and at www.collegeboard.com/ssd/. These Eligibility Form applications can be picked up in Mrs. Cavinder's office Bldg 4-139.
The ACT has forms as well: http://www.act.org/aap/pdf/ext-time.pdf Students should see their Guidance Counselor if questions arise. _____________________________________________________________
