PSAT-10 Accommodations Notification

From:              Robinson High School

Sent to:          Parents/Guardians of All Tenth Grade Students

Subject:          PSAT Accommodations in Grade 10


On April 19, 2021 High School tenth graders will have the option to take the Preliminary SAT 10 (PSAT 10). General information about the test is available on the PSAT 10 testing update webpage, and we will share more specifics about PSAT 10 testing in the coming weeks. Final testing decisions will be based on health department guidance.

Because the PSAT 10 is operated by the College Board, students with disabilities may only access testing accommodations that have been approved by the College Board. If you have a student with disabilities in tenth grade this school year who may need new College Board testing accommodation(s), please review the PSAT accommodations information and return your input and consent to us by Friday, February 12, 2021.

If you have questions about PSAT accommodations, contact Peggi Miller at When returning accommodation input and consent forms (Enclosures 2 and 3), deliver to:
