The Board of Regents and State Education Department have undertaken a thoughtful and inclusive review of the State high school graduation measures. The ultimate goal is to reaffirm what it means to obtain a diploma in New York State and what that diploma should signify to ensure educational excellence and equity for all students in New York State.
The Board of Regents and State Education Department will host regional meetings across the state to gather feedback on what a state diploma should signify to ensure educational excellence and equity for every student in New York State. The meetings are an integral part of Phase I in the Board and Department’s review of graduation measures and will offer opportunities for stakeholders and members of the public to share input.
At least one meeting will be held in each judicial district through April 2020. The meeting will be led by the local Board of Regents Member, the BOCES District Superintendent, or Big Five district staff. The meetings will include the opportunity for attendees to break out into small groups to discuss and provide feedback on each of five guiding questions.
If you cannot attend a meeting, please complete their online survey of the 5 guiding questions to provide feedback.
