SAT Testing Day Scheduled for March 1
February 16, 2023 Author: Indian Creek Schools
Indian Creek High School will participate in the state-mandated SAT School Day on Wednesday, March 1. All juniors are required by state law to take the SAT at their home school on this day.
Freshmen, sophomores and juniors will attend school on March 1. Freshmen and sophomores will participate in independent learning in class until lunch.
All juniors will be tested until lunch. After lunch, students will return to a regular schedule. Schools will not dismiss at 2 p.m. because some students will still be testing. All students will be released at 2:20 p.m.
Seniors are not required to be at school on March 1 if they use the day as a college visit or a job shadowing opportunity. Seniors need to let attendance know if they are going to be absent; otherwise, it will be marked as a college visit or job shadowing day for their attendance record. Seniors will have a place to go if they attend school on this day.
About the Test for Juniors
All juniors in the state of Indiana are required to take the SAT per the Indiana Department of Education’s plan for high school accountability. The SAT assesses high school mathematics, reading and writing standards in Grade 11.
In addition to being the test used for Indiana High School accountability, the SAT may also be used by our students to fulfill a graduation pathway or requirement. This year all juniors will be taking the SAT on March 1, 2023. It is important that all juniors attend school that day and participate in SAT testing.
Please review some important information about the plan for the testing day:
It is very important that all juniors are in their testing rooms and ready to begin NO LATER than 8:10 a.m. The students will go immediately to their testing rooms upon entering the building. SAT and the College Board do not allow students to enter a room after testing has begun; therefore, it is very important that they are not late.
It is also very important that students show up with a charged Chromebook. It may be difficult to get them charged that day during testing, so please remind them to charge it the night before so there are no disruptions to testing.
Students are not allowed to have any electronic devices during testing. This includes but is not limited to; cell phones, headphones, or other wearable technology. We suggest they leave the electronics at home. If they bring their devices to school they must be turned off and placed in a book bag. The teacher in the room will also be willing to collect them and hold on to them until testing is finished. Violation of this rule could invalidate the test for all students in the room.
