IMPORTANT STATE TESTING INFORMATION:
All grade 11 students enrolled in Delaware's public high schools are required to take the SAT School Day Assessment. There is no cost to 11th grade students in Delaware public high schools. The state of Delaware covers the cost of the SAT, one time, for every 11th grader enrolled in a Delaware public high school (including charter schools). This administration of the SAT occurs in spring of your junior year. If a student misses the opportunity to take SAT School Day in the spring of their junior year they will have one more opportunity in the fall of their senior year to take the SAT School Day once for free. Students will take the SAT during a regular school day at DAPSS.
