Accommodations Handbook

SSAT at Home Personal Protective Equipment Policy

When completing the SSAT At-Home, students may not wear a mask unless they have been approved for accommodations that include a support individual. Support personnel include either one or a combination of the following; a reader, a scribe, a sign language interpreter or some other required support individual needed to successfully complete testing. For students that have been approved for a support individual, both the student and the support individual are permitted to wear a mask throughout testing. During testing, the student and their support person will need to temporarily remove their mask so they can be visible to the camera at the start of testing and following each break. For students with approved support individuals, social distancing is permitted, when possible, and both the student and support individual may also possess and use sanitizing wipes and gloves.

If you have any questions or concerns about your family's ability to provide anything needed for your student to complete testing, please contact EMA immediately and well in advance of your scheduled test date.
