The district will administer the PSAT on Wednesday, October 10 and all high schools will serve as testing sites.
While all high school students and some middle school students can register to take the PSAT, the district will only pay for 11th grade students who are likely to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship. Any other students interested in taking the PSAT can pay $16 to take the assessment. The district will pay for the administration of current 11th grade students who have a GPA in the top 10% of the district. The GPA cutoff will be provided in the fall of the 18-19 school year. Eleventh grade students with a GPA below the cutoff will pay the $16 exam fee. Schools are encouraged to request fee waivers for any student who is unable to pay $16 fee by June 29. Schools are able to submit requests for additional fee waivers after the June 29 deadline, but a limited number will be available. These requests will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please note, per state requirements, the district will already be administering the PreACT to all 10th grade students during the fall. We will provide the testing window as soon as the 18-19 Testing Calendar is released by the state.
Students who wish to test with accommodations must have that information submitted to College Board by August 21.
