11th Grade, Register for SAT with Essay
Students should review their “Colleges I’m Thinking About List” in Naviance and research if any of the schools on their list requires the essay. Students can do so by going directly to the college’s website or go to the College Board’s SAT Essay Policies of Colleges website. Counselors will hold a registration session for interested students during Advisement on February 4, 2020. Click here if you would like to register for the SAT with Essay. The deadline to register for the SAT with Essay is February 18, 2020. If you have questions regarding the SAT with Essay, contact your child’s counselor: Last names A-K, Tom Lenderink at tlenderink@svak12.org or Last names L-Z, Jen Roos at jroos@svk12.org. 

Naviance Password Reset
Due to updated security measures, Naviance (the website used by counselors for surveys, college applications, etc.) will require all users to reset their passwords as of January 27, 2020. 9th, 10th and 11th graders should log-in to their Naviance accounts and update their password using the following combination: Dcsd, your student’s lunch number and sv at the end. For example Dcsd123456sv. If you have any questions, please reach out to Jennifer Roos at jroos@svak12.org.
