Sports - Procedures

Fall sports will start in July at South. All students participating in activities will be required to submit fees and the usual participation forms which can be found on the Anchorage School District Website prior to participation.


Take this test at home!! It is now possible to take this test at home. See these documents: Instructions-overview; Instructions-detailed. / Students may still take the test at school: This year, ASD has adopted a new Concussion Assessment Program mandated by the State of Alaska. Student activity participants will be required to have an assessment done at the time of sign up. The assessment will take 25 minutes at South High in the library. An additional $5.00 fee will be charged for this mandated assessment.


Because of the additional paperwork and assessment, please be prepared to spend a little more time at South then usual when signing up for Fall sports and activities. Thank you in advance for your patience. We look forward to seeing you in the halls of South very soon. Go Wolverines.

PSAT - October 20, 2012The PSAT is given only once each year and is excellent practice for the SAT.  It is also the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test for this year’s juniors.  For many students the PSAT is the first official step on the road to college. 

The PSAT is recommended for all juniors.  Sophomores are also encouraged to take the PSAT to practice for the official results when they take it their junior year.

The PSAT will be given this year on October 20, 2012, here at South.  The test begins promptly at 8 a.m., so students should check in by 7:30.  Registration will begin in October at the South Career Resource Center.  The cost will be $16.

Test results should be returned by the College Board in December.  Counselors have the actual test booklet used by each student and will return the test booklet along with the student’s scored answer sheet to each individual.  This gives students the opportunity to review and further prepare for the SAT, or in the case of sophomores, for next year’s PSAT.
