SUBJECT: October 2015 PSAT/NMSQT® at Stamford High School
Stamford High School will offer the PSAT/NMSQT® on Wednesday, October 14, 2015 to 10th and 11th grade students. The purpose of the test is to give all students an opportunity to experience taking a college readiness test and to identify students who might benefit from advanced coursework.
The administration of the PSAT/NMSQT® will result in a modified schedule that affects all students, regardless of whether they will be taking the exam or not.
Unless otherwise notified, all 10th and 11th grade students will arrive to school at the regularly scheduled time and report to assigned rooms for test administration. All room assignments will be posted throughout the building in the days leading up to the 14th. It is extremely important that all students taking the PSAT/NMSQT® are in their assigned rooms by 7:25 a.m.
Note: There are a limited number of calculators available to students for the math section – all students should come prepared with their own calculator (laptops, tablets, cellphones/smartphones are not acceptable).
All 9th and 12th grade students will report to school on a delayed start. A delayed bus run will pick students up three (3) hours after the normally scheduled pick up time. Upon arrival, 9th and 12th grade students will report to the gymnasium, located on the 4th floor or the cafeteria, depending on where they enter the building.
Once testing has concluded, all students will report to period 2 for an extended block class and their lunch wave. Class will begin at 11:15 a.m. All students will finish the day in period 3 and dismissal will occur at the regularly scheduled time.
If you have any questions regarding PSAT/NMSQT® administration, please contact Mr. Laskowski at 203-977-4706.
