Please read the following letter that was sent to all Juniors and parents last week regarding a no-cost October SAT School Day for current Juniors:
Dear Juniors, Parents & Guardians,
In light of the cancellation of all state summative assessments for the 2019-20 school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, current Grade 11 students could unfortunately not take the Connecticut SAT School Day in March 2020. However, to ensure that these students have access to an SAT exam at no-cost to them, the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) has made arrangements with the College Board so current Grade 11 students (Grade 12 in fall 2020) can take the SAT in fall 2020, either during a weekend or a school day administration. This weekend or fall SAT school day would be an optional test for students. There are no state requirements for having students take this test. This is not a rescheduling of the required Connecticut SAT School Day.
Our school has chosen to administer the SAT School Day to all Grade 12 students on October 14th, 2020. This test will be available at no cost for any Grade 12 student in our school. Our school will register all Grade 12 students to take the SAT.
Please note that students are also allowed to independently register and pay for additional test administrations on the following weekend dates: August 29th, September 26th, or October 3rd. As a reminder, parents and students have control over the release of the score to colleges and universities from the SAT School Day. If students and parents want a score from the SAT School Day to be sent to colleges or universities, they must explicitly request a “score send” from College Board.
If you have any questions, please contact your School Counselor.

Weekend SAT Dates and Registration Deadlines:
Registration is now open for the fall SAT test administrations. All students can register for the November or December SAT administration at this time. To accommodate students who were impacted by recent cancellations, we're offering a weeklong priority registration for August, September, and October administrations to students in the class of 2021 without a test score. Registration for August, September, and October administrations will open for all students on June 3 at 8 p.m., ET.

“In response to uncertainty and school cancellations due to COVID-19, ACT announced it will offer a flexible schedule for summer 2020 test dates and test-at-home options for fall/winter 2020. Please check act.org as FAQs are added.
As CDC and local guidelines for safety allow, ACT will offer national test dates on June 13 and July 18. If a test center is not able to open on the national test date, a makeup test date will be provided a week later. The makeup test date for the June 13 national test date will be June 20, and the makeup test date for the July 18 test date will be July 25.
We will announce test site changes if we see conditions where we're not able to have the test, as scheduled. We will continue to update our website with the latest information.
Starting in the late fall of 2020/early winter, ACT will introduce a new option allowing students to take the ACT test at their home on a computer through remote proctoring as part of its national testing program. More information about this option will be available in the coming weeks.
ACT will be offering its new individual section retest option, online testing with faster results and superscoring this fall, as previously announced for those students who wish to retake one or more sections of the exam.” - as stated on the ACT website
COVID-19 Updates and Resources
Students will be receive full credit for their ECE UConn classes. All students will receive an actual numerical grade if the student achieves a 75 or higher. Any grade below a 75 will become an audit on their UConn transcript. This grading system is only for the UConn part of the course. Westbrook High School will keep the earned numerical grade the student has in the class and that grade will be reflected on the WHS transcript.
