PSAT on October 10

August 07, 2018

PSAT 8/9 and PSAT/NMSQT tests will be administered at Langley HS on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, an early release day.

If you have a Individualized Educational Plan IEP) or a 504 Plan and wish to have accommodations for either test please review the information below:

For 9th grade students taking the PSAT 8/9, accommodations for students with disabilities who have been identified for testing accommodations in a 504 plan or an Individualized Education Program (IEP) are at the discretion of the school. Our professional opinion is that with the exception of students with a visual or hearing impairment, all students should take the PSAT 8/9 without accommodations. This is a practice test and thus an opportunity to establish or confirm the need for accommodations and provide the necessary documentation when making the required application through College Board for accommodations for the 10th grade PSAT, 11th grade PSAT/NMSQT or AP courses.  For questions, concerns or application for accommodations, please contact Janice Dabroski, LHS Assessment Coach, at jldabroski@fcps.edu no later than COB Friday, September 14.

Tenth and 11th grade students with disabilities who have been identified for testing accommodations in a 504 plan or an Individualized Education Program (IEP) may request accommodations for the PSAT/NMSQT. Accommodations must be approved by the College Board and documentation must meet the criteria outlined on their website. Not all students with disabilities require accommodations and some accommodations received by students in school are not deemed necessary by the College Board for the purposes of participating in the PSAT. Requests for accommodations must be completed and received by College Board by August 21, 2018. Contact Pam Jelinek at pgjelinek@fcps.edu for assistance with the College Board application.
