To any interested party;

Below you will find the response I received from SED regarding my concern
over the Geometry and Alg.2/Trig Regents exams being given simultaneously
in June 2014. My concern was that we will be far short on graphing
calculators for that many students at once. This is far more than the
"inconvenience" that Ms. Becker said it would be!

She said the schedule is "final". I thought that if more of us expressed
this same concern, they may reconsider.

Sincerely,

Good Morning, Mr. Fish,

Thank you for writing to the Office of State Assessment and providing us
with your feedback regarding the June 2014 Regents Exam Schedule. This
schedule is considered finalized and will not change. I apologize for any
inconvenience this may cause. If our office can be of any further
assistance to you, please feel free to contact us at this e-mail address.

Regards,

Eileen Becker

I have a concern regarding the concurrent scheduling of the Geometry and
the Algebra 2/trigonometry Regents exams in June 2014.

With the graphing calculator requirements and lower school budgets, my
school will not come close to having enough calculators to administer both
exams at the same time. I have heard from a number of other districts and
they are in the same situation.

Is there any chance the Department would consider rescheduling one of the
exams for a different day?

Sincerely,

James Fish
