    Video highlights SAT implementation in state



    The IASA Board of Directors heard a very informative presentation at its last meeting regarding the implementation of the SAT in Illinois. The presentation was given by Hoor Bhanpuri, Executive Director of the K-12 Illinois Partnership and a represenative of the College Board. It is looking more and more likely that the SAT won't be implemented in Illinois until the next school year, but some services are already available for free to students wishing to prepare for the SAT. That suite of services and an overview of major changes to the SAT are just a couple of items included in the video. You can view the video by clicking here.
