Updated SAT Information from College Board

We’re working to ensure that students will have opportunities to take the SAT® to make up for this spring’s lost administrations. Today we’re sharing with you that we’ve added a new SAT administration for Saturday, September 26, 2020. This date will be for the SAT only, in the United States and internationally, with no SAT Subject Tests™ available. Sunday testing for religious reasons will be on September 27.

Registration for the 2020-2021 SAT administrations will open the week of May 26.  At that point, June registrants will be able to transfer their seat to a 2020-2021 administration. All other students in the high school class of 2021 who don’t have SAT scores will also have early access to register for the August, September, and October administrations. This includes students who had registered for March or May and had their registrations canceled and refunded. For each administration this year, we’re also preparing to significantly expand our capacity.

Please visit the following website for more and complete information.   UPDATED SAT and PSAT Website

The National Federation of State High School Associations is pleased to announce that Douglas Byrd High School has earned Level 1 status within the NFHS School Honor Roll Program.
Image announcing NFHS School level 1 Douglas Byrd High School 2020-21 Recognition... "Always Lead"

Great job coaches, athletic director, Mrs. Neal, and Ms. Edwards!!! Submitted by Dr. Zoletta Taylor

*Please read the quoted information from the NFHS website:
“The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) has created the NFHS School Honor Roll, a national recognition program designed to promote professional development for high school coaches through the completion of specific courses through the NFHS Learning Center.”

“Education-based programs provide ongoing learning for participating students, and the NFHS School Honor Roll program provides a pathway for coaches within schools to be honored for their involvement in professional development,” said Dan Schuster, NFHS Director of Educational Services.

“After filling out an online application, schools can achieve three levels of merit within the NFHS School Honor Roll, which are obtained once 90 percent of a school’s coaches – excluding volunteer coaches – complete various course combinations. Participating institutions that earn Level 1, 2 or 3 distinctions receive a large display banner commemorating their accomplishments and their dedication to professional development and education-based athletics.”

Thespian Society Image Logo

The International Thespian Society (ITS) is a student honorary organization.  (ITS) recognizes the achievements of high school theatre students.

We help every organization that request our help with projects onstage. So far this year we have run the Talent show auditions and Mrs. Douglas Byrd rehearsals and Pageant. All of these activities require after school work. Toward the end of May we will be inducting new members into the International Thespian Honor Society.

As the club sponsor, I provide opportunities for students to earn thespian points by training them and providing support to them and their participation in productions on our stage. I also do all the required paper work associated with their membership and projects. I direct all of the technical aspects of what is happening onstage for our club, as well as anyone else’s club or academic program that ask for our help. –Submitted by Robert M. Baker, Jr.
