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.

“Finishing Strong”

To finish strong there must be a focus on the outcome or the prize.  There must be:

  • a strong determination to see it through
  • perseverance to stay on course
  • a willingness to commit

Parents of Seniors, encourage your graduate to finish the race, to engage online for their studies, and to obtain the prize (diploma). We are close to the end. Stay focus on the end goal. We at Douglas Byrd High School are confident that you can!!!!

Sharon Bailey, DBHS Parent Facilitator

Image of Cumberland County Schools Student Services logoDuring a typical school day, CCS students have access to a variety of Student Services professionals (counselors, social workers, psychologists, nurses) and military-connected resources such as the Military Family and Youth Liaison, Military Student Transition Counselors, and Military Family Life Counselors. This staff assists students with social-emotional concerns. CCS anticipates that some students may experience difficulty as a result of anxiety or stress related to the illness or school closure.

Cumberland County Schools now has a Student Services Hotline. This phone number should only be used by CCS students. For an emergency, call 9-1-1. If a student has concerns about anxiety, depression, abuse, suicidal thoughts, or has no food, etc. a student should dial 910-475-1950.  A CCS counselor or social worker will be available Monday through Friday.
