Northwest ISD will be administering the SAT on Wednesday, March 3.  All juniors enrolled in high school will have the opportunity to take the standardized test throughout the school day.  College Board requires all SAT test takers to test in-person.  Current NISD remote learners will test on their home campuses and appropriate transportation will be provided.  Seniors — including current in-person learners — will not be allowed on their home campuses during the test administration day.  On March 3, all NISD seniors will be engaged in remote learning activities — planned by the College and Career Readiness department — and additional updates regarding senior activities and expectations will be communicated by campus leadership.
