As we approach the end of the 2021-2022 school year, teachers and students are gearing up for classroom finals and NYS assessments. On May 9, 10 and 11, in accordance with the Commissioner’s Regulations CR-Part 154-2, all English Language Learners in the state of New York will be required to take the New York State English as a Second Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT).
This exam will impact a significant number of students at the Freshman Center and the High School. The Freshman Center and the High School will be responsible for administering NYSESLAT to a large number of their students over the three days. As a result, the Freshman Center and the High School will shift to full remote instruction during the three-day testing window. All students who do not have the ELL (English Language Learner) designation must log in to their scheduled classes remotely. The BTA and the district have agreed for teachers to provide students with synchronous and asynchronous lessons and check-ins during the three testing days. The Freshman Center and the High School will follow the regular bell schedule during this time. All high school BOCES students should report to the building as per usual.
If you have any questions regarding this letter, please contact your building principal.
