Calling all JUNIORS Class of 2024:

This year, the DSBPC is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity we are providing to all juniors this spring. All juniors will have the opportunity to take the SAT on March 1, 2023, during the regular school day. This test is being offered at no cost to students. “The SAT is a standardized college entrance exam that is accepted by every college in the U.S. and over 600 institutions internationally. It assesses the knowledge and skills your child is learning in the classroom—the same skills that are key to success in college and career.”

Typically, the test is only offered on weekends, but we are providing this opportunity during the school day so that your child will be comfortable by testing in a familiar place and so that parents and students are free from the burden of arranging transportation to the testing site. The SAT is a paper-based test that must be administered by trained test administrators, so the test can only be administered on site at campus.

The SAT scores are often used for college entry, but the scores can also be used for concordant scores for Florida state testing requirements. For more information about state testing requirements and concordant scores, please visit https://www.fldoe.org/core/fileparse.php/7764/urlt/gradrequirefsa.pdf You may visit https://sat.collegeboard.org/practice for more information, including practice tests and sample questions. If you would like information on SAT approved calculators, please visit https://satsuite.collegeboard.org/sat/what-to-bring-do/calculator-policy for more information.

This is a great opportunity for our students, and we are pleased to be able to offer it at no cost to all juniors. If you would prefer your student not participate in this event, please notify contact Mr. Richard Batchelor at rbatchel@pasco.k12.fl.us
