NYC Schools Closed Tuesday, 1/27 Regents Exams Re-Scheduled For Thursday 1/29

Straight from the DOE:

Schools will be closed on Tuesday, January 27. Given the snow day, Regents exams will be rescheduled to Thursday. The subjects impacted are:
  • Global History and Geography 
  • Integrated Algebra
  • Comprehensive Testing in Writing (special education)
  • Comprehensive in Mathematics (special education) 

I'm glad they're re-scheduling the exams rather than just cancelling them, but I would worry a little bit about the grading of these exams.

For that story, please see here.

Isn't there a better way to evaluate students, teachers and schools then a one day test given and graded during a week impacted by a blizzard?


  1. Are all exams cancelled tomorrow and rescheduled for Thursday no matter where you live in the state?

    I'd venture to say that if exams are given in parts of the state where snow is not that bad, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram might be ablaze with essay topics, questions, and answers from some of the Tuesday takers. No?

    1. That's a good point. But what else can NYC do, given the forecast?

  2. By the way, it was announced today-that some Regents exams will be graded at their own schools-instead of being sent out to a central location.
