ACT - How to receive accommodations
Dear Student and Parent/Guardian:
If wish to apply for testing accommodation(s) on College Board tests (SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and/or Advanced Placement Exams) due to disability, please click on the following link for a copy of “CONSENT FORM FOR ACCOMMODATIONS REQUEST”.
Complete the form and mail it to Assistant Principal, Mark Sidman who is the College Board, Services for Students with Disabilities Coordinator. The signed “CONSENT FORM” will authorize the high school: to release to the College Board copies of your records that document the existence of a disability and need for testing accommodations; to release any other information in the school's custody that the College Board requests for the purpose of determining my eligibility for testing accommodations on College Board tests; and to discuss my disability and accommodation needs with the College Board. By submitting the signed form, you also grant the College Board permission to receive and review your records, and to discuss your disability and needs with school personnel and other professionals.
ACT Accommodations and English Learner Supports
ACT is committed to serving examinees with documented disabilities by providing reasonable accommodations appropriate to the examinee's diagnosis and needs. ACT has established policies regarding documentation of an examinee’s disability.
If you currently receive accommodations in school due to a professionally diagnosed and documented disability, see the ACT Policy for Accommodations Documentation (PDF), which will prepare you and guide you through the process of requesting test accommodations on the ACT test.
ACT recognizes the need to expand access to English learners. Beginning in the fall of 2017, ACT will provide supports on the ACT test to U.S. students who are English learners. These supports are designed to improve access and equity for those students whose proficiency in English might prevent them from fully demonstrating the skills and knowledge they have learned in school. The number of English learners is growing in our country and ACT is committed to improve access and opportunity for them and all under served learners.
If you currently receive supports in school due to limited English proficiency, see the ACT Policy for English Learner Supports Documentation, which will prepare you and guide you through the process of requesting English learner supports on the ACT test.
