The information below is being shared to help you prepare, should it be deemed feasible to
proceed with the spring 2021 test administrations at schools throughout the state. Please note
that NYSED and the Board of Regents are closely monitoring the feasibility and fairness
of administering the grades 3–8 English Language Arts and mathematics tests next spring. At
this time, no final decision regarding the 2021 grades 3–8 English Language Arts and
mathematics tests has been made.
At this time, the New York State (NYS) grades 3–8 English Language Arts (ELA) and math
exams are scheduled to be administered from April 20–21, and May 4–5, respectively. NYSED
shared this letter on the status of NYS assessments on September 30. NYSED and the Office of
Assessment are planning for the possibility that NYS assessments may be given this year.

School Calendar 2020-2021
|Dear parents, grandparents, guardians and education activists,As you may have heard, the UFT and the DOE reached an agreement for reopening schools safely. School buildings will open for in-person learning on Sept. 21. The delay will allow time for teachers to plan and for schools to put in place robust safety measures that will protect our school communities.|
The new school reopening plan meets the safety criteria put forth by independent medical experts. Schools must pass a 50-point safety checklist, including the availability of masks, a room-by-room review of ventilation effectiveness and an isolation room. There will also be random sampling and COVID-19 testing of 10 to 20 percent of children and adults in each school building on a monthly basis.
To hear more details about the safety plan and what to expect this coming school year, please join us for our final summer parent workshop this Thursday. We’ll have a conversation about the reopening plan with UFT Vice President for Non-DOE Members Anne Goldman, a registered nurse and leader of the Federation of Nurses. Anne Goldman will share her medical expertise and knowledge of the reopening plan. Other UFT officials will also be on-hand to shed light on the upcoming school year and answer your questions.
Date: Thursday, Sept. 3 Time: 5 to 6 p.m. Register now » https://uft.wufoo.com/forms/q8cpuj81y8tfos/
