I hope you have had a restful break, and an opportunity to enjoy time with family.
As always, health and safety remain our highest priorities, and this post contains a link to information regarding mandatory weekly in-school testing for COVID-19 in all reopened buildings, and how you can submit the required consent forms.
This guidance applies to students in blended learning, who have already chosen to learn in the school building part of the week, and from home the rest of the week. Students who chose fully remote learning prior to building closures will continue to learn remotely full time.
Please visit the NYC Schools website for detailed information regarding: opening schedules PreK- 12, weekly testing, and student consent.
NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) is a web-based application that lets you to see your child’s academic and biographic
information on any computer, phone, or tablet. The application is translated into nine languages other than
English. In the account, you can see a child’s:
• Assessments (Test Scores)
• Enrollment History
• Graduation Tracker
• Health Information (Fitnessgram)
• Individualized Education Program (IEP) Information
• Promotion Tracker
• Reading Level
• Student Documents (Report Card, Transcript, Summer School Letter)
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.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Have a good evening.
