Hello Cougar Families and Happy Sunday,

We thought we'd share some pics from Friday's "Transforming the Task With Technology" professional development session, offered by Jeffco's EdTech folks. Dr. Nelson, Mr. Brooks, Mrs. Ramsey, Mrs. Gordon, Mr. Olyowski, Mr. Harrison, Mr. Newkirk and Mrs. Berninzoni all participated in this inspiring and stimulating opportunity. This work is key to continuing to make learning relevant, engaging and applicable for our students!

Spring Testing



When taking the Colorado school day SAT this spring (April 9, 2019), 11th grade students will have the option of taking the SAT with or without the optional essay.  Adding the essay to their SAT registration is a student choice.  The default registration for all students is the SAT without essay.  Students who wish to take the optional essay must register for it in advance; bulk registration for the SAT essay is not available. 

 

The essay registration window is Jan. 15-Feb. 12, 2019.  This will be the only opportunity for students who wish to take the optional essay to add it to their April school day test registration.  Students may add the essay to their registration through their online College Board account or by calling the College Board.  We will also be visiting 11thgrade English classrooms to assist students in the process.  Schools will not receive extra essay materials for test day changes, therefore, please be sure students register during the window.

Additional Information:

  • The SAT Essay is scored separately from the SAT.A student’s score on the essay will not improve or reduce their score on the SAT.
  • The essay may be required by some colleges and universities.To find out a particular school’s essay policies go to:https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/register/college-essay-policies
  • If students apply to a college that wants the essay and the student has not taken it, they will have to take the entire test over.It is not possible to just take the essay portion.
  • The optional essay is only offered as part of the 11th grade SAT.  There is no essay option for the PSAT 8/9 for 9th graders or the PSAT 10 for 10th graders.
