We will be administering the New York State Regents June 13 through June 22,2017. As a result we will be using a testing schedule.
Due to the seriousness of the testing administration, as well as the need to provide optimal test taking conditions, please reinforce with your children the following expectations:
• Students should only bring appropriate test materials. All backpacks and pocketbooks
will be confiscated.
• The use of any communications device is strictly prohibited. If communications devices
are used, no matter how briefly, their examinations will be invalidated and no score will
be calculated for them.
• All cell phones and electronic equipment will be confiscated.
• There are no make-ups for these examinations. Students must take these examinations on
the specified days and at the specified times.
• Students must remain for the entire testing period, 2 hours minimum and 3 hours
maximum, allotted for all Regents exams

On September 6, 2016, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation requiring all school districts and boards of cooperative educational services (BOCES) in New York State to test potable water systems for lead contamination and to take responsive actions. To implement this new law, the Department of Health issued emergency regulations, titled Lead Testing in School Drinking Water -10 NYCRR Subpart 67-4 (Subpart 67- 4), effective September 6, 2016.
