PSAE Retake Elimination

Beginning with the 2009-2010 school year, the PSAE will be administered only in the Spring of each school year.  The PSAE Fall Retake and all Grade 12 ACT test vouchers will be eliminated, effective immediately.

 A memorandum posted at summarizes the legislative changes brought about by Senate Bill 2014, regarding the administration of the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) and allowable exemptions from the PSAE diploma requirement.  PSAE diploma guidance for 2009-2010 graduates will be posted on in September 2009.
