principals update: regents and graduation

April 13, 2020

Dear Parents and Families,

In just a few short months, your student may be graduating from high school and moving on to college or career. As we near graduation, we want you to know that we are here to collaborate with you to support your student. In the transition to remote learning, we want to make sure you’re clear on the expectations for preparing to graduate.

First, we want to be clear on what it takes to graduate. The New York State Education Department sets our graduation requirements. Students must earn specific course credits and pass specific Regents exams to earn a diploma. You can review these requirements at the NYC DOE’s Graduation Requirements page.

While the course requirements have not changed, our students will complete them in a different way through remote learning. Your student is still expected to complete their teachers’ assignments and assessments during remote learning, and they will still receive grades. Any grades your student receives will not be impacted by their attendance. If your student passes the necessary courses, they will be on track to earning the credits they need to graduate.

In response to COVID-19, June 2020 Regents exams are cancelled. Your student may be eligible to waive exam requirements if they were planning to take these exams in June. I would like to set up time to speak with you individually about your student’s progress and whether this waiver applies to them. [Insert detailed information about the proposed date, time, and communication channel.] I look forward to connecting with you soon.

It is important for you to know the specific courses and exams your student needs to earn a diploma. You can view your student’s progress toward graduation in your NYC Schools Account. The Graduation Tracker within NYC Schools Account will show the courses and credits your student has already earned, the courses and credits your student is currently taking, and the remaining credits to meet graduation requirements. Also, you will be able to see your student’s performance on Regents and other assessment that count toward the exam requirements for graduation.

If you have questions specific to remote learning, you can read the DOE’s Information on Remote Learning.
