    Accommodations

    College Board is dedicated to ensuring that students with disabilities receive appropriate accommodations on their tests. Each year, the College Board Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) office receives over 200,000 requests for accommodations from students with disabilities, of which the vast majority are approved. Accommodations ensure that assessments measure a student’s knowledge, not their disability, and all students have access to the assessments. Accommodations may modify the test timing, setting, or materials. Some examples of accommodations are braille, large-print tests, and extended time. Many others exist. In addition to accommodations for students with disabilities, College Board offers an assortment of supports for English learner (EL) students participating in select assessments. 

    To request accommodations for a documented disability on College Board tests, please email Mr. Haire at hairer@fultonschools.org. When emailing him please provide the following information: a) scholar full name, b) Scholar ID number, c) accommodations to be requested , and d) a signed copy of the parental consent form (can be signed and emailed as a picture until we return to school).

    SSD-Consent-Form-Accommodations

    If you would like to request accommodations without the school’s involvement, this can be done by using a paper Student Eligibility form (available on www.collegeboard.org/ssd). However, families usually save time and get quicker responses when they collaborate with the school. 

    To ensure your scholar’s accommodations are approved by the College Board before SAT School Day, please contact Mr. Haire today (hairer@fultonschools.org).

    What time should my scholar arrive?

    To ensure testing starts and ends on time, scholars must be seated in their testing room no later than 8:15 A.M. Unfortunately, scholars who arrive late will not be allowed to enter testing rooms.

    Starting the PSAT or SAT late will impact our scholars’ ability to complete the assessment and will cause delays in transportation that will have a negative impact on our clusters elementary and middle school evening dismissals.

    What is my scholar's testing room number?

    Scholars in 9th, 10th, and 11th grade will take the PSAT in their homeroom classes. Seniors taking the SAT will be assigned a testing room. Testing groups will be shared once registration for SAT is closed.
