Starting with the 2016-2017 school year, the State of Illinois will use the SAT college entrance test as the State’s required student achievement assessment for high school students. All District 211 juniors (11th graders) will take the SAT on April 5, 2017, as part of this state-wide testing endeavor.

In District 211’s continued effort to support students’ readiness for this important assessment, and to strengthen parents’ awareness of the SAT’s structure and points of emphasis, High School District 211 is pleased to invite parents and community members to two upcoming Community Education Sessions. The first is on Wednesday, January 25 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at William Fremd High School, followed by the same presentation on Wednesday, February 1 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at Schaumburg High School.

A representative from the College Board will share details about the newly redesigned SAT assessment and how it provides information about students’ abilities in the areas of English/Language Arts and Mathematics. Additionally, details about District 211’s targeted efforts to prepare students for the SAT and the array of school-based resources students can access will be reviewed.

Community education is important to High School District 211 and your involvement will help our schools reinforce our commitment to serve all students. All sessions are open to the public and offered free of charge.
