05-24-22 June Regents for US History and Government (Framework) Canceled

Earlier today, the New York State Education Department (NYSED)and Commissioner of Education, Dr. Betty Rosa, notified school districts around the state that they are canceling the June Regents Exams for United States History and Government (Framework).

In her notice to school districts, Dr. Rosa wrote, “In the wake of the heinous mass shooting in Buffalo, the Department is taking numerous steps to explore potential areas of support for students and schools across the state. Such actions include having content experts from the Department, in partnership with NYS educators, review all June 2022 Regents Exams, which have already been printed and packaged for shipment to schools. During that review, our experts determined that there is content on the new Regents Examination in United States History and Government (Framework) that has the potential to compound student trauma caused by the recent violence in Buffalo.”

The full memo from Dr. Rosa is attached for you to read.
