Due to a shift in our school schedule the LRHSD will offer the PSAT on the Saturday administration, Saturday October 17th. This change has been made as to not take any class time away from in-class instruction for our students. Junior students will be able to sign up for the test starting on September 24th until October 1st. From October 1st until October 8th, additional students will be able to register for the PSAT until capacity is reached. The PSAT will be offered free of charge to all students who register for the October 17th exam. The LRHSD will not offer any weekday PSAT testing this year. Please use this registration form to register a student for the PSAT. If you are registering more than one student, please fill out the registration form as many times as you are registering students. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s counselor.
The College Board automatically enters only high-scoring juniors into the National Merit Scholarship competition. The PSAT is not a district assessment with IEP provisions but rather a group-administered practice assessment overseen by the College Board without accommodations for ninth-graders and tenth-graders with IEPs or 504 Plans. Accommodations pre-approved by the College Board will be provided for eleventh-graders.
- Any student who does not feel well on the day of the test should stay home. Please see the COVID-19 health checklist.
- Students will have their temperature taken as they enter the building on test day and should maintain social distancing at all times.
- Testing rooms will be limited in capacity to ensure proper social distancing during testing.
- All students will be required to wear a mask/face covering during the PSAT administration.
- Doors will open at 7:30AM on October 17th. Testing will begin at 8AM.
- All testers will receive electronic copies of the PSAT student guides before the exam. This guide contains useful information, a practice test, and an answer key. We strongly recommend all test-takers use these guides to prepare for the PSAT.
- All multi-media devices (e.g. cell phones, iPods, Smart Watches), food/drink, and backpacks are restricted in student testing areas.
- All students taking the PSAT should bring calculators, pencils and erasers to the testing areas.
- Every student should get a good night’s sleep the night before the test and eat a healthy breakfast that morning.
Thank you for your help in making your student’s testing experience as successful as possible. More information is available at the Collegeboard website.
