I think that is the question that we are ALL looking for the answer to. I just had an administrator return from Albany with the impression that students would sit for both!

WHOA! Let's not make any assumptions that just because both exams are being offered means that ANYONE can take the 2005 standards based exams. Was there a memo on this that I missed? (for some reason some of my listserve stuff has been going to spam lately) I'm pretty sure that those 2005 standards exams are only going to be offered to students who previously failed them. Anyone else know? Liz

Since the "old" (2005 NYS standards) regents exams will still be offered 2013-2014 are there districts that will only implement CCSS in Algebra next year and use the 2005 state standards for Geometry? Or is everyone implementing CCSS Algebra and Geometry next year?

So will students still be able to earn two high school credits for Algebra (algebra split over two years)? or must all students take Algebra in one year?

At this point there is no change; passing any one Math regents is the requirement. Again that is at this point in time.

Thanks for passing this on. So now I pose the question to the group, how will graduation requirements change for mathematics given the changes to the curriculum? Has anyone heard anything?
