Does the waiver for technical assessment to graduate only apply to seniors? Or will it apply to sophomores and juniors as well?
The Regents’ guidance is focused on graduating seniors who will be completing their NYSED Approved CTE programs of study in June 2020. In order to ensure equity and access for all students, those students who are not graduating seniors will have the opportunity to retake their technical assessments next school year and should not be considered exempt. As a result of the accessibility issues caused by COVID-19 related school closures, not all vendors are able to provide remote assessments as such NYSED Approved CTE programs of study are not required to administer technical assessments.
