Hudson Valley school officials to help study looking into ways students can graduate high school without passing Regents

Several school officials from our the Hudson Valley will be serving on the Blue Ribbon Commission -- a state board whose mission it is to look into additional ways students can graduate high school rather than relying on passing the Regents exams.
The board consists of educators, researchers, school counselors, parents and students.
The New York state Education Department says the commission will present recommendations to the Board of Regents on what measures of learning and achievement could better serve all students with diversity, equity and inclusion in mind.
The commission will start meeting in the fall and will meet regularly until it submit its final report in 2024.
