http://classroom.leanderisd.org/users/0967/images/SAT.png?param=0.8142149893101305

To apply for SAT testing accommodations:

In order for me to apply on the student's behalf, we must have all the necessary documentation on file at GHS. In most cases, this includes the following:

1. A current 504 in place for at least 4 months which includes the accommodations for which you are applying.

2. A professional evaluation with cognitive ability (IQ) test scores within the last 10 years.

3. A professional evaluation with academic achievement test scores within the last 5 years.

Please note: College Board states that "inclusion of an accommodation on an IEP/504 Plan/Formal Plan does not automatically qualify a student for accommodations on College Board tests."

**Make sure that you read through the documentation requirements for your specific case and ensure that we have the necessary paperwork PRIOR to your request.

If a student does NOT already have accommodations in place per his/her 504, or you do not have the documentation required, you may personally submit requests.
