Update on December SAT/ACT

MCPS is moving forward with the December 5 SAT and December 12 ACT administration at selected high school test centers. However, based on changing health and safety guidelines and prioritizing the health and safety of students and staff, capacity will be reduced at each test center. Unfortunately, this may result in some students being unregistered for the December 5 SAT by College Board or for the December 12 test by ACT. When unregistering students, these organizations use their own processes for determining which students are cancelled, which is typically based on prioritizing seniors. College Board or ACT will contact students directly via email if there is a change to their registration status, as this is not managed by MCPS. MCPS will keep you updated on future testing opportunities in early 2021.

Complete the Parent Survey by Dec. 3

Starting Nov. 11, parents will be asked to complete this short survey to indicate whether their child(ren) will remain exclusively in a virtual learning environment or engage in a combination of in-person and virtual instruction during the second semester. Both options would allow students to participate in in-person athletics and extracurricular activities. Parents will also be asked to indicate if their child needs MCPS-provided transportation.

MCPS COVID-19 Data Dashboard

Surging COVID-19 infection rates across the nation and in our region have required school districts across the country to revise and adjust recovery plans for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. MCPS remains committed to follow applicable guidelines from the Maryland Department of Health, our local health department, and the CDC for safe reopening of in-person instruction. The purpose of this dashboard is to provide the Montgomery county community with identified health metrics that will guide our conversations about the safe return to in-person learning.
