TOPS Bulletin T2000-22 furnished you with revisions to (Louisiana Administrative Code, Title 28, Part IV), one of which provided that students must request the College Board to report their SAT scores electronically to LOSFA. Please note that a typographical error was made on the bulletin. It should have stated that the score must be electronically reported within 45 days of the final test date allowed by Section 509, the section which addresses the college test deadline. The corrected text follows:
Chapter 5. Application; Application Deadlines and Proof of Compliance
§509. American College Test (ACT) Testing Deadline
B. The student may substitute an equivalent score, as determined by the comparison tables used by LASFAC, on an equivalent Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) taken on or before the official April test date in the Academic Year (High School) in which the student graduates. In order to substitute a SAT score, the student must direct the College Board to send the score to LOSFA so that the score is electronically reported to LOSFA by the College Board within 45 days of the final test date allowed by Section 509. SAT scores received in any other manner shall not be considered.
