On Wednesday, March 25th, (after spring break) your child will be coming home with a College Board Student Data Consent Form. The form allows your 10th or 11th-grade child to participate in the Optional Questionnaire that is part of the SAT/PSAT10 pre-administration session. The questionnaire asks your child about his/her interests. This information is used for group reporting, for analysis to ensure the exams are fair for all groups, to connect you with potential colleges or scholarship opportunities, and for research. The signed consent form needs to be returned to the front office by Tuesday, March 31st. Links to the College Board Consent Form and Student Guides are below.
Note: The consent form is NOT required for your child to take the SAT/PSAT 10 assessment. It is only required for the College Board Optional Questionnaire.
The information from this questionnaire will be used to...
- Give counselors and college admission officers information to help you plan for the future. The more information you give, the more assistance they can give to you.
- Provide information to the College Board that is used to ensure the PSAT 10 and SAT are fair and accurate tests for all students.
- Support research and planning by the College Board to improve tests and services.
- Contribute―when combined with responses of all other students taking the PSAT 10 or SAT―to an understanding of your graduating class. This lets colleges and universities deliver programs and opportunities to serve you and your classmates.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
District 6 Headlines
As some of you may have already heard, some school districts in Colorado have made the decision to keep school buildings closed and continue with remote learning for the remainder of the school year. Today, Greeley-Evans School District 6 is choosing not to join these districts. Like District 6, most school districts in Weld County are waiting for additional data and recommendations from the state and county health officials. This week, Governor Jared Polis issued an order for all schools in Colorado to stop in-person learning through April 30. For now, that is the date that District 6 is working toward.
Governor Jared Polis announced today that all schools in Colorado will be closed to in-person learning until April 30, 2020. Anticipating this announcement, we have plans in place to continue virtual education through that time.
The goal of the 2020 Census is to count everyone once, only once, and in the right place. The Census Bureau will continue to improve its use of mobile technology, geospatial innovations, and internet self-response. For schools, the U.S. Census helps determine how much federal income comes into your school district every year in the form of nutrition disbursements, special education funding from IDEA, and Title 1 funding. Between 2011 and 2018, Colorado school districts received $3.56 billion. Learn more about the U.S. Census. It's important. It's easy. It's safe.
The Greeley-Evans School District 6 Board of Education will host a virtual business meeting beginning at 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 31, 2020. This meeting will be streamed live on the District 6 YouTube Channel and can be accessed through the District 6 website at www.greeleyschools.org.
