Friday Night Live Article - Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is increasingly becoming a national epidemic taking away the lives of many. This mainly affects teenagers and young adults, perceived as “reckless” drivers compared to those of older age. Young drivers can easily become distracted by loud music, talking to passengers in the car, and most frequently, texting and talking on the phone. Trying to divide attention to two or more events, like driving and texting, will result in poor judgement on the road and ultimately life threatening accidents. It’s estimated that drivers under the age of twenty have the highest proportion of distraction-related fatal crashes. On average, drivers will take five seconds to take their eyes off the road to text, and when driving at 55 miles per hour, five seconds is enough to cover a football field. Because of this, 200,000 crashes a year are due to texting and 1.4 million crashes are due to phone calls.

Sending ACT/SAT Scores to Universities

Seniors who have applied to four year universities must send SAT and/or ACT scores directly from collegeboard.org or act.org. Bolsa Grande can not send SAT/ACT scores to universities. Results can be sent to colleges for free if students make their request between the time of registration and one week after they take the test. After that time, a charge of $11 per score destination may apply. If a student sends SAT scores to CSU mentor (code #3594) all CSU schools will receive SAT scores. If a student sends their ACT score to at least one CSU campus they can use ACT Score Manager (www.csumentor.edu) to release their scores to additional campuses for free. Both SAT and ACT scores may be sent to any one of the UC schools and scores will automatically go to all UC schools.
