Parent Information Program Rescheduled
COLLEGE ADMISSION TESTING: PARENT INFORMATION PROGRAM RESCHEDULED FROM WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9 TO THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, at 6:30 PM
         Because the PSAT test was revised for 2015, scores will not arrive in early December as they have in the past. PSAT scores will not be released until January.  They will be accessible online and via paper copies that the counselors will provide to students and parents.  Because of the delay in receiving PSAT score, the College Admission Testing information program has been moved from December 9 to January 21.     
         PSAT tests results will be available for parents at the January 21, 2016, program at 6:30 PM in the Kuhn Center.  At that time Mr. Lindley will interpret PSAT test results.  He will also explain what  parents need to know about planning for and registering for the ACT and SAT tests which their children will be taking in the winter and spring of this year. He will detail the changes for the new, redesigned PSAT/SAT test and the differences between ACT and SAT.  In addition, he will discuss the benefits of test prep courses. Parents of sophomore students who took the PSAT test should attend the PSAT program with parents of juniors.
         Parents attending the program should enter the building through door # 12 or #19 and proceed to the Kuhn Cultural Arts Center. If parents are unable to attend this program, their students will receive test results on Friday, January 22.    
         The Practice ACT test results for sophomores were given to students and mailed to parents on Thursday, October 29.
