SAT Parental Consent, Optional Questionnaire

Prior to taking the SAT, there is a two-part pre-administration session:

First, to save time during the actual test administration, certain information about your child will be provided to the College Board, (the provider of the SAT) in advance of the SAT. This information covers basic information such as name, school, state student ID, grade, gender, and date of birth. In addition, MCPS shares information with College Board regarding students who qualify for a fee waiver, which is utilized solely for that purpose and is not otherwise tracked or maintained by College Board.

Second, your child will have the opportunity to participate, with your consent, in the optional Student Data Questionnaire. The College Board gives students and families complete discretion regarding any voluntary information they provide as part of the Student Data Questionnaire. Information gathered is used for group reporting, for analysis to ensure that the exams are fair for all groups, to connect your child with potential colleges or scholarship opportunities, and for research. Read more about the Student Data Questionnaire below.

To provide consent for your child to participate in the optional Student Data Questionnaire, you must return a signed consent form by before the school pre-administration session.

  • If you have a MyMCPS Portal account, you can provide this consent by logging into the myMCPS Portal
  • If you do not have a MyMCPS Portal account, please contact the school to receive account information.
  • Or, you can return a copy of this form to your child’s school.

Whether or not you consent for your child to participate in the optional Student Data Questionnaire, your child will still be able to participate in the SAT.

 

If you have any questions regarding SAT School Day, please contact Mr. Heintze, assistant principal: James_T_Heintze@mcpsmd.org
