Maine DOE reminds schools of SAT registration deadline

The Maine DOE is reminding schools of the April 1 deadline for registering students for the upcoming school day administration of the SAT.

While the Maine Educational Assessment (MEA) for Mathematics and English Language Arts/Literacy developed by Smarter Balanced is the new required State assessment, the Maine DOE is providing the SAT at no cost to third-year high school students who wish to take it through a school day administration on Wednesday, April 15.

So far, nearly every high school in the state has registered to be a school day test center and more than 6,000 students have signed-up to participate.

SAT Course Coordinators have been identified at participating schools and given students access to the Official SAT Online Course and Registration Coordinators have received instructions to assist students with the registration process, which closes Wednesday, April 1. Students must create a College Board account with their SAT School Day vouchers for registration.

Additionally, Test Center Supervisors must complete the online training by April 1. The current Test Center Manual can be found here and test materials will ship to Test Center Supervisors between April 3-10.

College Board’s Alex Moore is available as a dedicated expert support contact for Maine schools and can be reached at (571) 485-3818 or MaineInitiative@collegeboard.org.
