State-Funded SAT Tests

State law requires districts and community schools to administer the state-funded ACT or SAT to all grade 11 students in the spring of the school year. Each year, districts and schools will select the test to administer to their juniors.

*Beginning Spring 2025 for the Class of 2026, a parent or guardian can exercise the option for their student not to take the state-funded ACT or SAT as indicated in House Bill 82.

All LEAs should make sure they have a current email address in OEDS (OEDS.ContactUs@education.ohio.gov) and with the Ohio K-12 Help Desk (support@ohio-k12.org).
