As the start of the school year gets underway, the NYSED will be mindful of the many uncertainties faced statewide. We will continuously monitor the situation and provide updated guidance, policies, and regulatory changes as the situation requires. This will include closely monitoring the feasibility and fairness of administering the January, June, and August 2021 Regents Examinations. At this time, no final decision regarding the 2021 Regents Examination administrations has been made. Keeping this in mind, the new tentative dates for the January, June, and August 2021 Regents Examination periods are being provided at this time to assist schools and districts with developing their local school calendars for the 2020-21 school year. We very much appreciate all the input from superintendents and other school and district leaders that enabled us to arrive at these dates. Read full SED memo.
