Free PSAT/NMSQT Day for juniors set for Oct. 29

On Thursday, Oct. 29, only 11th grade students will be allowed on high school campuses to take advantage of a free College Board assessment, the PSAT/NMSQT, offered to enrolled NISD students this school year.

Registration is required, and only students who indicate on the Participation Form that they will participate in the designated test will be allowed on campus and to test on scheduled testing dates. All students in the designated grade level need to complete a Participation Form to indicate if they will or will not test on campus on their particular date. Virtual learners in the designated testing grade who submit a Participation Form indicating they will test will need to come on campus since the College Board does not offer an option for testing at home.

All juniors must complete the Participation Form, whether testing or not.

Students who choose not to participate and those in a grade level not testing will be expected to engage in virtual learning from home October 29.

Previously advertised testing dates are:
