All 10th grade students have the opportunity to take the PSATs on January 26th at no cost. For this year only, 10th grade students may also decide to defer their PSAT test, paid for by the division, to the fall of 2021. All 10th grade students should indicate their decision about taking the PSATs in Rycor by Wednesday, January 6, 2021.
Students in grades 9, 11 and 12 interested in taking the PSATs in January, can register on Rycor, the division’s online form and payment management system. Registration must be completed by Wednesday, January 6, 2021.
Registered students will need to arrive at their high school by 7:45am the morning of the test. YCSD mitigation strategies detailed in the division’s Return to School plan will be in place, including the use of face masks, and all students will be expected to complete a Health Screening prior to entering a school. Division Transportation will be provided for those who indicate a need for transportation as part of the registration process in Rycor.
Students should bring the following materials with them on testing day: mask, water bottle, snack, sharpened pencils, and an approved calculator. More information about the PSATs can be found in the PSAT Student Guide. Additionally, more information will be sent via email to registered students the week prior to testing. For additional information regarding the PSATs please reach out to your student’s school counselor or the building Assessment and Compliance Coordinator (ACC).
Please note that at any time the division may decide to cancel PSAT testing as our priority is your health and safety or due to inclement weather.
