Timeline fast tracked for rethinking Regents exams and other grad requirements
The fate of New York’s storied Regents exams — and other changes to high school graduation requirements — may be decided sooner than anticipated, state education officials confirmed Monday.
After years of discussing how New York’s graduation policies should change, officials launched a special commission last year to present recommendations to the Board of Regents by the spring or summer of 2024. Their findings are now expected in November, Deputy Commissioner Angelique Johnson said at Monday’s monthly Board of Regents meeting.
That moves up the timeline by at least a few months, though a spokesperson for the state education department did not immediately say how long the board would take to deliberate over the recommendations or when new diploma requirements might go into effect.
The state’s reconsideration of graduation requirements is perhaps its most high profile effort in recent years. It has caused substantial debate and discussion over what students should be required to know before they leave high school.
