REMINDER: Submit your district selection of ACT or SAT between Aug. 14 and Sept. 13
Schools will administer state-sponsored college and career readiness tests in spring 2020. Juniors will take whichever college and career readiness test their districts choose. The Department has updated its webpages for the state-funded ACT and SAT tests.
On Aug. 14, each district will receive a survey link it can use to indicate its choice of the ACT or SAT for the spring 2020 administration. Each district must confirm that it will give the same test it gave in spring 2019, or it must choose another test for 2020.
Because the home districts of students attending joint vocational school districts and educational service centers will select the ACT or SAT tests, JVSD and ESC superintendents will not receive ACT/SAT selection surveys. However, these superintendents can work with local districts, community schools and chartered nonpublic schools to arrange to administer the state-funded college and career readiness tests to students attending their schools. Additional details on collaboration are available here.
Again, the survey will be open until Sept. 13. For more information, such as test dates, to help your district make this important choice, see recorded presentations from SAT and ACT or visit the SAT and ACT websites for printed overviews.
The SAT vendor will contact participating districts starting in early October. The ACT vendor will contact participating districts starting in early November. Districts that will administer the tests online must become vendor-approved testing sites according to steps outlined on each vendor’s website for Ohio.
Please direct questions about the survey to Michael Reiser at (614) 644-7305.
