Make-ups and Expedited Retakes for ALL tests

Absent Students

Students who are absent from their SOL due to illness or family emergency will be rescheduled to test as soon as time and space permits. Students should return to Herndon prepared to take their missed SOL tests.

Expedited Retake Eligibility

Senior (Term Graduates) – Seniors are automatically eligible for an expedited retake regardless of non-passing score and may have a 3rd attempt if passing the test is necessary for graduation or for a particular diploma. Third attempts must be approved by the Office of Assessment and Reporting.

Underclass Students – Underclass students are automatically eligible for an expedited retake with a score of 375 and above. Underclass students with a score below 375 may receive an expedited retake for extenuating circumstances if approved by both Herndon High School and the Office of Assessment and Reporting. Remediation will be provided by each department for qualifying students before the retake exam.

Test Completion

Students may have as much time as they need to complete a SOL test as long as they are actively working on the test. All tests must be completed within the school day.

Cell Phone & Electronic Device Policy

Students are not permitted to have cell phones or electronic devices in their possession during testing and should make arrangements to secure them appropriately before testing. Students who are found with an electronic device, even if turned off, during testing or whose device makes noise during testing will not be permitted to finish testing and will not receive a score.

SOL Reminders for Students

  • Students should get a good night's sleep and eat breakfast/lunch before the test.
  • Students should not bring backpacks or electronic devices (including cell phones) into the testing room.
  • Students should bring pencils and a picture ID to the test. Calculators will be provided.

HHS hosted the SAT School Day for seniors on Wednesday, September 23, 2020. If students provided an email address on their answer sheet, they should have received an email from CollegeBoard when their scores were available in mid-October.


Tenth graders had an opportunity to participate in the PSAT 10 on April 19, 2021. Students will receive an email from Ms. Shreve on or by May 10, 2021 with information on how to access their score report on the CollegeBoard website.
