Please do not reply to this email, contact carrieberg at berkeley.net or
benettewilliams at berkeley.net.

Due to local health orders, the SAT at Berkeley High School on August 29th
will be cancelled. All students registered for this exam will receive
notifications from the College Board via email, including information about
their full refund. Students can call the College Board to sign up for later
test dates; we still have open spaces for the December SAT.

What will happen with other SAT and ACT exams this Fall? We will continue
to work with local health officials to determine on a case-by-case basis
whether conditions will allow us to host upcoming exams. We will keep you
informed if we need to cancel other exams in the future.

Do I need the SAT or ACT for my college applications? Most colleges and
universities have decided to make the SAT and ACT optional for students
applying to attend school in '21-'22. Please check here
<https://www.fairtest.org/university/optional/state> for regular updates on
colleges that are test-optional; if a college is not on the list, students
should search online to see the most current admissions information.

What should I do if I still want to take the SAT? At this point, students
can still call College Board to sign up for future SAT dates that still
have availability; we encourage you to do so quickly, as College Board does
not allow us to limit sign-ups to Berkeley High students. If BHS is full,
we suggest you sign-up to test at other locations. You can also look here
<https://pages.collegeboard.org/sat-covid-19-updates> for SAT COVID-19
updates from College Board.

We have also formally requested that College Board help us find other
solutions for our students at this time. We hope to be able to share
information that comes our way.

If you have questions, please contact Carrie Berg, VP over testing, at
carrieberg at berkeley.net and Benette Williams, SAT/ACT/PSAT Coordinator, at
benettewilliams at berkeley.net.

We understand that this may cause a great deal of stress and sincerely
apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for your understanding as we
continue to navigate this unprecedented time together.


Nicole Chee, Jenny Fosket, and Chaghig Walker are the parent-volunteer
facilitators of the Etree; please direct any questions about the Etree to
