Fall 2019 SAT and PSAT Rescheduled to October 30th!

As Chicago Public Schools (CPS) and Mayor Lightfoot’s Office continue working toward fair contract agreements with our teachers and school support staff, the district is making contingency plans so students are not negatively impacted in the event of a work stoppage. To ensure students have optimum conditions for the Fall 2019 PSAT and SAT assessments, the district has decided to change the administration date in district-managed schools to Wednesday, October 30, 2019. These assessments were originally scheduled for October 16th—the day before a potential work stoppage would occur. October 16th will be a regular attendance day for all students and schools will operate on their normal bell schedule.

This change affects the following students:
9th graders testing for the PSAT 8/9
10th and 11th graders testing for the PSAT/NMSQT
12th graders testing for the SAT

Please see the parent letter above for additional details regarding this change.
