In an effort to improve equity and access for more students to the higher education admission process, all Tech 11th grade students will take the SAT exam (including the essay section) for FREE on Wednesday, March 21, starting at 9 AM sharp. OUSD is funding the cost of the exam. Bulldog juniors are automatically registered by the district so there’s no need for families to do anything other than ensure students arrive at school on time, rested and ready to focus — with sharp #2 pencils, a snack and a calculator. Please note that the test takers will not get a lunch break so it’s important they bring some nourishment to help keep them fueled. Also, juniors will not have classes that day. Once the test is over (around 2PM or so) they will be excused for the day.
“The first science fiction written by a black woman, Kindred has become a cornerstone of black American literature. This combination of slave memoir, fantasy, and historical fiction is a novel of rich literary complexity.” – Goodreads
