(1) August Administrations of the Regents Exam in Algebra 2/Trigonometry

At the September 2014 meeting of the Board of Regents, the Board discussed the need to increase student access to advanced coursework and the percentage of students who earn the Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation - one of the Departments aspirational performance measures of college- and career-readiness. In an effort to help students earn this credential, the Department will re-introduce the August administration of the Regents Examination in Algebra 2/Trigonometry during the August administration periods.

In addition, a commitment to computer science and coding in the K-12 setting promises long-term equity benefits, particularly for girls and students of color, who are typically under-represented in these fields. Current regulations provide schools and districts with the flexibility to offer courses in computer science and programming that can be used to meet graduation requirements.
