NYS Regent Exam Information for Families


NYS RegentsRecently the State Education Department (NYSED) announced plans for the June 2021 Administration of the NYS High School Regents Examinations.  In recognition of concerns regarding the impact of the pandemic on the students of New York State, the State Education Department applied earlier this year for a waiver with the Federal Education Department which, if granted, would have exempted the state from the requirement to administer Regents exams as well as English Language Arts and math assessments in grades three through eight. The Federal government has informed all states that no waivers will be provided. As a result, New York State is required to administer certain, but not all, Regents exams. 

In addition to administering the required exams, the State Education Department has provided adjustments with respect to the assessment requirements that students must ordinarily meet in order to earn diplomas, credentials, and endorsements so that the current pandemic will not adversely impact students. Details regarding those adjustments are provided below.

 

As we prepare for the administration of the four Regents examinations scheduled for June, we request that you fill out the following Google Form to provide us with details of your intent to have your child participate in the Regents. Please be mindful that transportation will be available on the day of the exams and a schedule will be posted on the website in June. The deadline for informing the district of your decision is by the end of the business day on Friday, May 21, 2021

HEALTH AND SAFETY
Planning for the administration of Regents exams will include ensuring that all health and safety protocols are followed including social distancing, face coverings, and the requirement that all students complete the Daily COVID Questionnaire.  The administration of the exams will be in person, therefore any virtual students will need to decide if they are interested in coming to the building on the day of the exam.  In order to best prepare for these assessments, it is important for the Newburgh District to know how many students will be in attendance. 

LINKS AND RESOURCES
We have provided links to guidance from the New York State Education Department to help you in your decision about your child deciding to take any of the four Regents exams that are offered. 

If you have any questions regarding your decision as to whether or not you would like your child to take any of the Regents, you may discuss this with your child’s teacher, your building administrator, your child’s guidance counselor, or call the Office of Curriculum and Instruction at 845-563-3420.


ATTENTION: Are your scholars or colleagues doing something great? Please contact the district Communications Strategist, Cassie Sklarz (csklarz@necsd.net).
