Alexandra:  Hi. Is there any legal ramification for a high school scheduling a sports game on the same day as the SAT at 1030 in the morning? My daughter had to waive her college board approved extended time accommodation ( we had to come into the school the morning of the SAT to sign waiver) so she could get to her game on time. Please advise

My child took the SAT this Saturday. In our case, my child had all the accommodations which were needed. I understand your conflict for many reasons as I am also a sports parent–many college coaches are still looking at players this time of the year and championships are being held. My child had a sports event and bottom line, the priority was the SAT and it took her a while as she had a reader, extended time, etc. She did not rush through the test for the game and she is a varsity athlete. Yes, she almost missed her event –but the SAT was the priority. I understand the pressure to attend the sports event, but my child has missed sports events before for academic reasons–choices to make- choices.
