SAT-Smarter Balance 2015 Information

SAT4
Optional SAT:
Offered to all 11th grade students at no cost on Wednesday, April 15
.

The SAT is no longer the test mandated by the State of Maine to assess student performance. The College Board, however, is offering the SAT to all interested juniors at no cost to them. The SAT will be administered on Wednesday, April 15 at the high School, and we encourage all 11th grade students to take advantage of this opportunity.   Students will be asked to indicate their interest in taking the SAT through their English classes and registration will take place later this winter at the high school. Details on the testing day will be forthcoming.

Other options? We have limited availability of a different assessment which is used by the Maine Community Colleges as well as a number of technical schools. This assessment, the Accuplacer will also be available on a first come, first serve basis, in place of the SAT. Again, information about this option will be provided to juniors in their English classes.

Other options? Students who do not choose to take either the SAT or the Accuplacer will attend classes as usual.

Brunswick School Department Now Has Its Own Facebook Page!

We now have a Facebook page. It joins the district website, school websites, school newsletters, and superintendent’s letters to help us communicate to our constituencies. . This will be used by all four buildings and Central Office. We hope to give quick notifications of events, meetings, and links to existing websites when appropriate.

This is not an interactive Facebook page. You cannot post to it, nor comment on a post. It’s not a spot to ask a question as there is no one monitoring to answer it. It is one more way to get information about school activities. You can however “ like” the page so the good news about our school system can be shared. Our newsletters and websites will continue to provide more in depth information for you.

Each school website will have a link to the BSD Facebook Page on the left hand column.
