The New York State Education Department ruled that the cancelled June regents exams will not need to be made up for students to  graduate, according to the Tuesday Covid-19 update from Pelham Superintendent of Schools Dr. Cheryl Champ.

Students in seventh through 12th grades who were set to take the exams will graduate “so long as they achieve a passing grade in the course as a whole,” Champ said.

“A variety of other regulatory adjustments were also made to assist students with disabilities and English learners in meeting the requirements to graduate,” she said. “Students should speak to their school counselor about the implications of these changes on their individual circumstances. We will continue to discuss and share additional information with regard to fourth quarter assessments and final course grades as it becomes available. “
