End-of-Year Instructional/Regents Schedule for Niskayuna High School

In light of recent information from the state regarding Regents exams, the schedule for the last days of instruction and Regents at the high school are below. New York State Education Department is not requiring students to take and pass Regents exams typically required for graduation this year. Students will be granted credit toward graduation if they successfully complete these courses earning a final average of 65 or higher and will receive “Exempt” for the Regents exam on their transcript.

However, the US Department of Education is requiring New York State to administer Regents exams in English, Algebra I, Earth Science, and Living Environment. It is up to students and families to decide if they would like to take these exams. Any student that takes an exam may make a request to have a Regents score noted on their transcript by contacting the grade level principal over the summer.

All Regents exams will take place in-person at the high school. Students in these courses will receive a survey asking if they intend to take any of these exams. The schedule for exams and last days of instruction is below.

June 17 9 a.m. to Noon English Regents Exam No Regular Instruction
