Changes to ACT/SAT Testing Accommodations
Posted 12/20/18

Beginning January,  2019, SRVUSD will no longer process student requests for accommodations on the SAT or ACT.

 

This decision was made for a variety of reasons including the lack of space, availability of resources/proctors, and counselors’ time. Additionally, students who request and receive accommodations for school-based testing (e.g. students who test over multiple days) will not be tested at  the student’s school site. Students will still be able to request and receive accommodations on these exams. However, parents and students will now be submitting these requests directly to the  College Board (SAT) and/or ACT. Please see below for additional information and instructions.

 

Feel free to contact the following for assistance:  

 

For students with a 504, please contact the student’s counselor and for students with an IEP, please contact the student’s case manager.
