Your College Board Holiday Present

Great news! Just a quick note to make sure you know that the College Board has streamlined its approval process for those students that qualify for testing accommodations.

In the past, it took seven weeks to get approval and there was often a lot of documentation requested. Now, students can get approved quickly through their school guidance counselor if their 504 plan, IEP or formal private school plan specifies the accommodation and the school confirms that the testing accommodation is currently being used.

This approval will apply to the PSAT, SAT, AP and subject tests. Yay!

Now, we can only hope that the ACT will follow suit and make its accommodation approval process easier and quicker too.

Hoping that you and your family get a chance to slow down and enjoy each other’s company over the holiday. All my best for a happy and healthy year in 2017.
