Re: Mid Terms & Regents Week - 1/22 - 1/26

1/4/2018

Greetings ND-BG Parents and Guardians,

 

As we rapidly approach the end of the First Semester of the Academic Year, we wanted to take an opportunity to alert you to a change in our calendar:

 

  • During the week of Monday, 1/22/18 through 1/26/18 will be Midterm Exam and January Regents Week.
  • School will be operating on a half day schedule with dismissal scheduled for 11:15am.
  • Students in Grades 9-12:
    • Will take one exam from their core courses each day in the morning from Monday, 1/22/18 through Friday, 1/26/18
    • In most instances, these exams will be Mid Terms covering course content from the First Semester.
    • These Mid Terms will only be averaged as a single exam however in the Third Quarter Marking Period
    • Students taking courses through the SCCC College in the High School Program will have their Final Exams administered during this period.
  • Students in Grades 6-8:
    • Will have classes during Monday, 1/22 and Tuesday, 1/23, although they will be dismissed at 11:15am.
    • Will take two exams from their courses each day in the morning from Wednesday, 1/24/18 through Friday, 1/26/18
    • In most instances, these exams will be Mid Terms covering course content from the First Semester.
    • These Mid Terms will only be averaged as a single exam however in the Third Quarter Marking Period
  • Students taking Regents Exams scheduled for Monday, 1/22/18 through Friday, 1/26/18
    • Will be contacted by guidance regarding Exam Schedules
    • Will have accommodations made for make-ups of their Mid Terms

 

Thank you for your support as we attempt to alleviate end of the year exam stress for students by providing them with experience earlier in the year. Mid Terms will also allow another method of assessing our students’ strengths and weaknesses as we make our towards June Regents and Final Exams.

 

Questions regarding individual Exams should be directed to your child’s teacher. A complete schedule of Exams will follow in the coming days.

 

Happy New Year,

 

Ritch Harrigan

Interim Assistant Principal (beginning 1/22/18)
