PSAT10 Testing, Accommodations, and EL Supports Notification

From:              High School

Sent to:          Parents/Guardians of All Tenth Grade Students

Subject:          PSAT Accommodations and EL Supports in Grade 10

 

On April 19, 2021, High School tenth graders will have the opportunity to take the Preliminary SAT 10 (PSAT 10). General information about the test is available on the PSAT 10 testing update webpage, and we will share more specifics about PSAT 10 testing in the coming weeks. Final testing decisions will be based on health department guidance.

Students with disabilities who have testing accommodations documented in a 504 Plan or an individualized education program (IEP) may be eligible for testing accommodations on the PSAT 10; however, the College Board must approve a formal request for each student. If the student already has College Board accommodations approved from a previous PSAT 10, SAT, or AP test, then no further action is needed. The PSAT Accommodations Process webpage provides additional information, including accommodations input and consent forms.

English learners (ELs), as defined by state or federal policy, are eligible for testing supports on the PSAT 10. Unlike accommodations for students with disabilities, EL supports are temporary and can only be used on the test date for which they have been requested. The PSAT EL Supports Process webpage provides additional information, including accommodations input and consent forms.

To request new College Board accommodations and/or temporary EL supports, parents and guardians should return the corresponding input and consent forms to the school by February 12, 2021.

If you have questions about PSAT accommodations or testing supports, please contact us at 703-660-2019 or TNThomasCovi@fcps.edu. When returning input and consent forms for accommodations or EL supports, deliver to:
