But it was clearly stated that the state was NOT going to phase out. The state was going to do an immediate rollover.

Some clear communication from the state and the powers that are instituting common core would be nice. Its the least they could do with our RTTT funds .

It?s assumed at this point that they are talking about the ?phase out? of the exams to accommodate the students who are taking those exams now, but may need to retake them if they don?t pass. People are asking for more specific guidance on this.

Dear Colleagues,

Attached is the release of the January and June 2014 Regents exam schedules. I may be wrong, but I was under the impression that there was not going to be a transiton period from the old Regents exam to the new, as they have done in the past, and that June 2014 would be the new Common Core Regents in Algebra and Geometry without an option of taking the Integrated Algebra and Geometry Regents. I am pretty sure this is what John Svendsen told us at the AMTNYS level meeting back in November. Did I miss something? The attached documents say otherwise. Does this mean we can offer Integrated Algebra and Geometry (2005 edition) one more time?
