Please read the following information about the January 2019 local and Regents examinations that will be administered at the high school.

Dates

Local and Regents exams are scheduled for Tuesday, January 22 through Friday, January 25. Classes will not be in session on Tuesday through Thursday. Regular classes will resume on Friday, January 25. Students should only report to school if they have an exam or scheduled review session. Classroom teachers will inform students of the times and locations of exams. This information can also be found on our school website.

Attendance

The importance of participating in Regents and/or local final or midterm exams cannot be emphasized enough. Students enrolled in courses for which there are midterm or final examinations are responsible for taking tests on given dates and times. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each examination period and phone calls will be made to verify each absence. The scheduling of personal appointments, vacations or meeting obligations other than those of an emergency nature shall not constitute a valid reason for missing an examination and will result in a grade of zero. Valid reasons include illness or injury confirmed by a physician’s note; death in family; or court appearance confirmed by court documentation. Notification to the attendance clerk or school counselor is mandatory, who will then provide the notification to the Principal. Eligibility for making-up a local examination will be determined by the Principal. Once the absence has been approved, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the teacher to reschedule the exam. If arrangements for make-up examinations have not been made prior to the conclusion of the examination period, those unscheduled students shall receive an examination grade of zero.

Universal Admission Deadline Times for Regents Examinations

Students taking Regents exams will not be admitted into the exam room after the State Universal Admission Deadline times of 10 a.m. for the morning exams and 2 p.m. for the afternoon exams.

Unauthorized Materials

When students enter the exam room, they are not allowed to bring in unauthorized materials, i.e., backpacks, bags, hats or non-religious head wear, food, beverages (including water), electronic devices, notes, or other printed material that would give them an unfair advantage. This applies to all exams (Regents, midterms and finals). With regards to cell phones, please see the detailed information below:
“All students are prohibited from bringing cell phones and certain other electronic devices into a classroom or other location where a State examination is being administered. Test proctors, test monitors and school officials shall retain the right to collect and hold any prohibited electronic devices prior to the start of the test administration. Admission to the test shall be denied to any student who is in possession of a cell phone or other prohibited electronic device and refuses to relinquish it.” If the principal determines that a student “had a prohibited device in his or her possession during the test administration, the student’s test must be invalidated. No score may be calculated for that student.” – NYSED’s Directions for Administering Regents Examinations June and August 2015 Administration.

Inclement Weather

“Schools may not administer State examinations when weather conditions are severe enough to warrant closing school and canceling normal bus transportation” (2015 School Administrator’s Manual Secondary Level Administrations, p.1-3). Therefore, Regents examination and RCTs cannot be rescheduled. However, in the event of inclement weather, local midterms and finals will be rescheduled for Friday, January 25, 2019. Please see the high school’s website for updates.
