Required SAT score for students who don’t pass PARCC

While a great deal has been made of the state’s requirements using the new PARCC exams for high school graduation this year, the first backup for students not meeting the PARCC benchmark has been set: scoring at least a 400 on the SAT in both reading and math. That may not seem like much on a scale of 800, but it may prove to be the failsafe for potentially hundreds if not thousands of students in peril of not meeting the testing requirement for graduation.
