By B.J. Williams News Director
GAINESVILLE - In a first for the Hall County School District, the system will offer students an interactive webinar to help them prepare for the SAT.

The live online sessions are scheduled for the five Thursdays prior to the March 9, 2013 administration of the SAT. Students may participate from 6:30-8 p.m. on the evenings of Feb. 7, Feb. 14, Feb. 21, Feb. 28 and March 7.

Those who want to participate, but may not be available to view a session live, can download a podcast no later than the Wednesday following the live session.
