New PSAT Test Date Set, Instructional Calendar Change for All Cobb Families

Tuesday, January 26, 2021, is the new test date for the PSAT NSMQT for high school students, which will change all schools' schedules on Tuesday, January 26, and Wednesday, January 27. 

This date is the only option the College Board has provided for students who were scheduled to test on October 29. As you may remember, the PSAT and NSMQT were canceled in October due to bad weather. 

To social distance as required by the College Board, the Cobb County School District will alter all schools’ schedules (PK-12) on January 26 and January 27. 

All schools will operate on Tuesday, January 26, as an Instructional Support Day (typically held on Wednesdays) and learn remotely. Only high school students registered to take the PSAT and NSMQT will report to school on this date.

All schools will operate on Wednesday, January 27, as a regularly scheduled instructional day through face-to-face and remote classrooms.

If you have any questions about the PSAT NSMQT, please contact your local school for more information.
