NHS Application Forms
Yale Undergraduate Admissions
In response to the devastating hurricanes that have recently hit the southern United States, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean, the Yale Office of Undergraduate Admissions will offer an extension of the application deadline for the Single-Choice Early Action program from November 1 to November 10 for affected students and schools.
The extension is being offered to any student who has experienced hardship associated with the hurricanes. No explanation or justification will be required; affected students may simply submit a Common Application or Coalition Application to Yale by Friday November 10 at 11:59 pm and select “Early Action” when applying. The extension also applies to school documents such as transcripts, school reports, and letters of recommendation.
As always, if paying the application fee poses a financial hardship, a student may request a fee waiver when applying. Fee waiver requests will be granted automatically. Details and instructions are posted on our website at admissions.yale.edu/fee-waiver
The extension will not affect students planning to apply to Yale through QuestBridge. These students must first submit an application to the QuestBridge national organization by September 27. Students named QuestBridge Finalists on October 19 will have their QuestBridge applications automatically sent to Yale and will not need to complete an additional application.
Yale’s policy is currently posted to our website at admissions.yale.edu/hurricane. Students will find links to the policy on our homepage and several other pages with application instructions and details. Thank you for passing this message along to your community.
I wish you all the best for the current academic year. If your community has been affected by the recent hurricanes, we wish you and your students a speedy recovery.

Attention Parents - Important FSA Information
September 25, 2017
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that students at Spanish River Community High School may be taking the computer-based Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) ELA Writing and Reading Retake and/or Algebra 1 or Geometry) End-of-Course (EOC) assessment(s) between September 27, 2017 and October 13, 2017. The FSA ELA Retake is administered over three days and consists of one 120-minute ELA Writing session and two 90-minute ELA Reading sessions. For the FSA ELA Writing Retake and ELA Reading Retake sessions, any student who has not completed a session by the end of the allotted time may continue working up to half the length of a typical school day for that session. FSA EOC assessments are administered in two 90-minute sessions over two days, and students may have up to half the length of a typical school day to complete each session.
If applicable to your student, he/she may have had an opportunity to participate in a practice test to become familiar with the computer-based testing platform, item types, and response formats he or she will see on the FSA assessment(s). If you or your student would like to review the computer-based practice test at home, the practice tests and answer keys are available at http://www.FSAssessments.org/students-and-families/practice-tests/.
Please review the following policies with your student before testing:
Electronic Devices—Students are not permitted to have any electronic devices, including, but not limited to, cell phones, smartphones, and smartwatches, at any time during testing or during breaks (e.g., restroom), even if they are turned off or students do not use them. If your student is found with an electronic device, his or her test will be invalidated.
Calculators—For EOC assessments, calculators may be used during Session 2 only. If students have handheld calculators during Session 1, their tests will be invalidated. For more information about calculator policies, see the FSA Calculator and Reference Sheet Policies document on the FSA Portal.
Testing Rules Acknowledgment—All FSA tests include a Testing Rules Acknowledgment that reads: “I understand the testing rules that were just read to me. If I do not follow these rules, my test score may be invalidated.” Prior to testing, test administrators read the rules to students, and students acknowledge that they understand the testing rules by signing below the statement on their planning sheets, worksheets, or work folders.
Discussing Test Content after Testing—The last portion of the testing rules read to students before they sign below the Testing Rules Acknowledgment reads: “Because the content in all statewide assessments is secure, you may not discuss or reveal details about the test items or passages after the test. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting online, for example, on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, or Instagram.” Please make sure your student understands that “discussing” test content includes any kind of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting to blogs or social media websites, etc. While students may not share information about secure test content after testing, this policy is not intended to prevent students from discussing their testing experiences with their parents/families.
Working Independently—Students are responsible for doing their own work during the test and for protecting their answers from being seen by others. If students are caught cheating during testing, their tests will be invalidated. In addition, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) employs Caveon Test Security to analyze student test results to detect unusually similar answer patterns. Student tests within a school that are found to have extremely similar answer patterns will be invalidated.
Leaving Campus—If your student leaves campus before completing a test session (for lunch, an appointment or illness, etc.), he or she will not be allowed to return to that test session. If your student does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested on a make-up day.
Testing Accommodations—If your student has an Individual Education Plan (IEP), Section 504 Plan, or is an English Language Learner (ELL), please contact the school to discuss the testing accommodations that will be provided for your student.
If you have any questions related to this test administration, you may contact Mrs. Mara J. Goron or Dr. Kia Allen-Jefferson, Assistant Principals, at 561-241-2201. For more information about the FSA program, please visit the FSA Portal at www.FSAssessments.org.
Thank you for supporting your student and encouraging him or her to do his or her best during this test administration.
Mr. William R. Latson, Ed. S.
