SED has posted memos on the NYS English as a Second Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT), The Athletic Process for Interscholastic Athletic Programs, and New York State K-12 Social Studies Framework Implementation, Course Requirements and Assessment Changes
The NYSESLAT provides information on how the NYSESLAT is changing and on training for the listening and speaking portions of the test.
The Athletic Process for Interscholastic Athletic Programs provides guidance to districts on how to evaluate those student athletes who want to participate in sports at a higher or lower level. It provides templates for approval letters for boards of education, athletic directors and physicians as well as a sports skills evaluation and parent/guardian letter of consent.
New York State K-12 Social Studies Framework Implementation, Course Requirements and Assessment Changes provides a timeline that will guide districts in implementing the instruction aligned to the NYS K-12 Social Studies Framework in order to prepare students for the new social studies Regents Exams that will be available in June 2018. The new Global History and Geography Regents Exam to be administered for the first time in June 2018 will measure student knowledge of Global History based on the Grade 10 or Global II course, which will cover the time period of 1750 through the present day.
