Special Testing FAQ
Special testing FAQ
We are eager to help your child receive the accommodations they deserve on standardized tests, which testing companies refer to as “special testing.” In order to ensure a less stressful, more efficient special-testing application process, Menlo collects consent forms that authorize the school to submit applications on your child’s behalf when they enter the Upper School or receive their first Upper School SSP. Menlo also obtains a digital copy of your child’s most recent psycho-educational testing report because the College Board and ACT review this document before they issue a decision about accommodations. Finally, we share your child’s current Student Success Plan (SSP) with both testing companies to strengthen the quality of our application for accommodations. The remainder of this page answers common questions families have about the special testing accommodations process.
