Bringing Official SAT Practice to Rural and Small Towns
Bringing Official SAT Practice to Rural and Small TownsCollege Board Communications
Allen Pratt, executive director of the National Association for Rural Education, recently talked with RFD-TV about the launch of California’s Official SAT Practice Rural and Small Town Challenge and how it will help more students prepare for the SAT in a deep and meaningful way.
“Many times in the rural areas, we don’t have access to resources that other more urban and suburban areas have. This is an opportunity to help our rural schools,” said Pratt. “The biggest thing is that 20 hours practice has been linked to a 115-point increase on the SAT, which is a big dramatic jump that could benefit our students in rural communities.”
Superintendents from rural and small California districts can sign up for the Challenge by August 15 at http://bit.ly/OSPRuralChallenge.
