2018 State SAT for OPRFHS Juniors
The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has implemented the SAT as a required college-readiness test for all juniors. The SAT our students take at school can be used for college admissions, as nearly every college and university that requires a test score accepts SAT. All public high school juniors must take the SAT in order to earn a high school diploma, unless the student has an IEP that specifies the DLM-Alternate Assessment. School code also requires the scores from the state-mandated college readiness assessment to be placed on students’ transcripts. SAT scores will be shown on the transcript, unless parents request that the score be removed. More information about that process is available here.
The State SAT date is April 10, 2018. Makeup testing will take place on April 24. Students approved by College Board to test with extended time accommodations will test over two days, April 10-11, due to the length of extended time testing.
Registration for the test is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, March 14, during the late arrival time. Juniors should arrive at school at 8:00 to register for the SAT.
No classes will meet on April 10, 2018. The day will be used for school-wide testing of freshmen and sophomores in addition to the state SAT.
Testing will begin at 8:00 a.m. Students will be dismissed from school upon the conclusion of the test.
- Please contact Ms. Amy Hill (434-3373 or email@example.com) or Ms. Tiffany Kinser (434-3573 or firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions about the state SAT or the registration.
For students with IEP or 504 Plans, OPRFHS has submitted requests for testing accommodations to College Board and will implement all approved testing accommodations. Please contact Ms. Margaret Collins, Administrative Assistant for Testing Accommodations, at 434-3121 if you have any questions about your child's test accommodations.
Students are not allowed to have cell phones in the testing room. Please reinforce this important information with your junior child. Cell phones should remain locked in lockers or left at home on the day of the test.
