State approves appeals process for Regents exams
In a year fraught with learning disruptions, the Board of Regents this week approved a special appeals process to allow students to graduate with a lower score on Regents exams. The reprieve would apply to students who pass the Regents course and score a 50–64 on a Regents exam in the 2021–22 and 2022–23 school years. Appeals can be filed by a student, parent/guardian, teacher, school counselor or the department chairperson. Here are SED's FAQ, memo and application form.
