We would like to request the administrators at James Logan High School to hold the PSAT exam for Juniors because:

- The PSAT/NMSQT assessment for Juniors determines their eligibility for the prestigious National Merit Scholarship, and
- The PSATs can usually only be taken at a student's high school.

College Board has published 4 possible dates for PSAT this year ( https://pages.collegeboard.org/sat-covid-19-updates ), which includes a new date for Tuesday, January 26, 2021. They also include options like "Off-site testing", "Flexible start times" and "No charge for unused tests".

Hopefully, this flexibility can help the school hold the tests in a safe manner. For example, the exam may be held at multiple school sites to spread out the crowd, and start times of various students can be straddled.

Several schools in Southern California are holding the PSAT. For example, if you enter Irvine CA on this site: https://ordering.collegeboard.org/testordering/publicSearchCont , you'll see 10 schools holding the PSAT. Irvine is in Orange County which is in the red zone similar to Alameda County. We also heard unconfirmed reports that Fremont and Pleasanton (only for Juniors thus reducing the size of the event population) are holding PSAT in January.

We would really appreciate if you could give our Juniors an opportunity to take the PSAT so they have a chance to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship, which is an important factor for college admissions.
