The State Education Department recently released the attached memo to provide new information on the transition to Common Core Regents exams in English language arts (ELA) and in mathematics (Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II).
The memo also includes an attachment detailing changes to the June 2014 Regents Exam schedule.

Because the first administrations of the Common Core exams in Geometry and Algebra II have been postponed until June 2015 and June 2016, respectively, the June 2014 exam schedule has been amended such that the Regents Examination in Algebra I (Common Core) will be administered on the morning of June 3, the Regents Examination in ELA (Common Core) will be administered on the afternoon of June 3, and no exams will be administered on June 4, as had originally been planned.
