INFORMATIONAL LETTER NO.: 102
POLICY CODE: ILB
TO: Superintendents of Schools, High School Principals, Guidance Counselors, and Assessment Coordinators
FROM: Susan A. Gendron, Commissioner
DATE: February 16, 2006
SUBJECT: SAT Registration Roster Verification and Accommodations Update
During the past two months, the guidance director or designated test coordinator at your high school completed and returned an initial SAT registration roster along with paper registration forms to the College Board. The roster was designed to give an early indication of those students who will use testing accommodations through the checking of one of the two accommodations categories for individual students:
An SAT Roster Verification Form for your school has been prepared based on those preliminary rosters and completion of a College Board review of the documentation for most students requesting College Board accommodations. In order to ensure that ample quantities of appropriate materials are on-site for those students and others requiring Maine accommodations, it is critical that each school review and validate the category to which each student has been assigned. Changes will need to be made to specify Maine accommodations when appropriate.
On Thursday, February 16th, the revised rosters will be made available online to schools for the verification process. Please review the SAT Roster Verification Form to verify that:
In order to change the status of students needing Maine accommodations, you must click on the “Edit” button in the student’s record and enter appropriate Maine accommodation codes as directed in the Step-by-Step Instructions provided on the MEDMS site. The online verification must be completed and submitted by Friday, March 3, 2006.
To ensure that the information is kept secure and viewable only by local school officials, the updateable roster is a form housed inside the Maine Education Data Management System (MEDMS). If the guidance/test director does not have access to this form, please make sure to provide them “Student Admin” level permissions for this verification process. The MEDMS login page can be reached at: https://www.medms.maine.gov/MEDMS.
