Testing Accommodations

Students who have an IEP or 504 do not automatically have College Board accommodations. Students who have been approved in previous years do not need to apply again. All of the paperwork is to be given to Shelley Wiederhold, Special Education Department Chair at Oakton High School, and Candice Tenerelli, Assistant SSD. Each of the following must be completed:

Paperwork should be delivered to Oakton High School to the attention of Shelley Wiederhold and Candice Tenerelli, or emailed to @email and @email

If you are returning paperwork in the summer, please email Mrs. Wiederhold and Ms. Tenerelli to let them know to expect it.

In order to be approved by specific exams, there are deadlines to allow for us to process and submit to the College Board by their deadlines.

  • PSAT approval: please submit to Mrs. Wiederhold and Ms. Tenerelli no later than August 18, 2020
  • AP Exam approval: please submit to Mrs. Wiederhold and Ms. Tenerelli no later than December 11, 2020 for May 2021 administration

Please note that once accommodations have been approved for PSAT, SAT, or AP exams, students do not need to reapply. College Board-approved accommodations will be in place for the student's time in high school and on all College Board exams.
