Accommodations on ACT or College Board Exams
If your child wishes to receive accommodations on ACT or College Board exams, make sure to fill out the consent forms and send them to me the semester before your child intends to take the exams.
I apply for accommodations about once every two weeks for a number of students at a time because it is a lengthy process. In addition, it may take College Board 7-9 weeks to conclude their review process and award accommodations.
Please check the websites for both ACT and College Board for due dates for accommodations requests for the test your child wants to take.
If your child is currently in 8th grade and wishes to have accommodations in 9th grade on their PSAT test, they need to have their 8th grade counselor apply for those accommodations in the spring. The deadline for applying for accommodations for the October PSAT is the first week of school, and there is no way I could possibly complete the application process for all new 9th graders in a week's time in addition to all other daily responsibilities and duties as the Student Services Counselor.
