  • State Testing:

    Illinois State Board of Education has received a waiver for the 2019-2020 school year from the U.S. Department of Education for state assessments. This action officially ends assessment activity statewide for the Illinois.

    College Board ensures that students will have plenty of opportunity to make up for the spring's lost administration. College Board will be offering weekend SAT administrations every month through the end of the calendar year, beginning in August. This includes a new administration in September, in addition to the previously scheduled tests. The class of 2021 will have early access to registration for the August, September, and October administrations. Students will be notified by email in May when registration opens.
