8th Grade Superintendent Test Waiver

Post date: Apr 1, 2015 2:13:16 PM

Upon discussion with Ms. Geary and the 8th grade Superintendent's Math Teachers, a proposal was presented to the School Leadership Team to request a waiver from the NYC Office of Academic Policies to allow our 8th grade Superintendent's students to take the 8th grade NYS Math Test, as well as the Algebra 1 Common Core Regents, since our students are well prepared for both. This was voted on and unanimously passed by the SLT. A request was then submitted to the City and, later, approved,to grant IS 259 this waiver.

The Grade 8 Math test is April 22,23,24, 2015 and the Math Regents is June 17, 2015.

Thank you,
