Education Commissioner John B. King, Jr. has released a memo with details on the revised testing schedule for the 2011-12 school year. There are a few changes this year. First, the Grades 3-8 ELA and Mathematics assessments will now be given in April rather than May. The second significant change this year is the implementation of uniform testing dates for these assessments. Finally, New York City Mayor Bloomberg and several private donors have provided funding to restore January Regents exams in 2012. Please see the full memo for details.
