PLEASE do not reply to this email, if you have questions please contact
Leah Katz, interim VP over testing, at leahkatz at berkeley.net or Benette
Williams, SAT/ACT/PSAT Coordinator, at benettewilliams at berkeley.net.
We are writing to inform you that the SAT at Berkeley High School on
November 7th 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, however, continue reading in the next section:
What will happen with other SAT and ACT exams this year? 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 additional questions, please contact Leah Katz, interim VP over
testing, at leahkatz 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.
Take care and stay safe,
Nicole Chee, Jenny Fosket, Chaghig Walker, and Charlotte Le Liboux are the
parent-volunteer facilitators of the Etree; please direct any questions
about the Etree to them at bhs-owner at lmi.net.
