Regents Exams and NY State ELA and Math tests cancelled for this school year.

 Update for Families_April 7 2020 3 chancellor.pdf 

Regents Exams:

The State has cancelled June 2020 Regents exams. Families of high school students will soon receive additional guidance regarding how this impacts graduation requirements. In short, students who planned to take Regents exams in June 2020 will be exempt from these exams in order to earn their diploma, but they still must complete the required course credits to graduate. Our goal is to make sure that students on track to graduate this year continue to remain on their path toward successful completion of high school.

Math and ELA Tests:

The State has cancelled math and English Language Arts tests for grades 3 through 8.
