RE: Regents exam names

I have also heard that they are not definitely based on the PARCC assessments. Has anyone heard otherwise?
My concern is that I still don't know exactly what topics are covered when..... I asked this earlier through this forum and I was referred to the PARCC information, but now I believe that NYS hasn't decided to use PARCC.
I am soooooo confused.

You are correct Evan, the Algebra and Geometry exams both change next year (1314). I haven?t heard anything about the names of them.

Two questions:
(1) When CCLS is implemented in the HS, starting next year, do we know if the names of the Regents Exams will change to match the CCLS course names (Alg I, Geom, Alg II) or will NYS continue to call the exams Int Alg, Geom and A2T? I assume the names will change, but has SED decided that yet? (We're trying to decide on our math course names for next year.)
(2) I should know this, but I'm confused: when does Geometry become a CCLS course? I know 9th grade math becomes CC next year (201314), and I know 11th grade math becomes CC in 20142015. But is Geometry CC in 201314 or in 201415? I thought it was 201415, but this document seems to say it's 201314:

I says "seems because it's hard to read across the table horizontally.
