Extending Phase-In Of Tougher NY Regents Exams

   BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) _ New York education officials are planning to give high school students more time to meet the new Common Core learning standards.

 

A Board of Regents work group on Monday recommended making the class of 2022, not the class of 2017, the first group required to pass Common Core-aligned English and math exams at what are considered ``college- and career-ready levels.''

 

 

It's one of several recommendations made by the group tasked with improving the way New York is implementing the Common Core.

 

 

Education Commissioner John King says current high school students will be able to pass Common Core-aligned Regents exams with a score of 65, but the class of 2022 will be expected to get a 75 on the English language arts exam and an 80 on math.
