April 7th Family Letter from Chancellor Carranza
• School Closures: The State has announced that all schools in New York State will now remain closed through April 29, 2020.
• 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.
• AP Exams: The College Board has announced that AP exams will not be administered in school buildings, but students will be able to take AP exams at home. We will soon provide guidance to schools and students on how to implement these changes.
