Proposal on Portfolio Schools

BR (A) 7

 

          In 1995, the Department granted a five-year variance to a group of schools that make up the New York Performance Standards Consortium to use a portfolio assessment in place of the Regents exams.

 

          In 2001, a Blue Ribbon Panel of assessment experts found no evidence that the alternative assessments measured the State Learning Standards and did not meet the standards for rigor, reliability and validity that are required of any alternative assessment the State Education Department approves.  The Department provided that the 39 schools still in question could implement a schedule for the Regents exams so that students who entered grade 9 in 2001 would take all five Regents exams or an approved alternative.  The schedule was extended last year, allowing students who entered grade 9 in 2001 to continue to use alternative assessments to graduate provided they passed the Regents English exam.

 

          The following proposal applies only to those students in the original 39 portfolio schools and specifies the requirements they would need to meet as the Regents 65 graduation standard adopted in June 2005 is phased in over the next four years:

 


Students entering grade 9 prior to 2005:

would continue to be under their current requirement to pass the Regents English exam at 55 or above.

 


Students entering grade 9 in 2005:

would be required to pass the Regents English exam at 65 or above.

 


Students entering grade 9 in 2006 and 2007:

would be required to pass the Regents English exam at 65 or above plus one other Regents exam at 65 or above.

 


Students entering grade 9 in 2008:

would be required to pass the Regents English exam and two other Regents exams at 65 or above.  This will permit schools time to align their mathematics program with the new standards and tests for high school math.

 


Students entering grade 9 in 2009:

would be required to pass all five Regents exams at 65 or above.

 

Under this schedule, students entering grade 9 in 2009 will need to pass Regents exams at 65 or above or an approved alternative.  During the next four years, the schools can present evidence to show their assessments are rigorous, valid and reliable and measure the State�s learning standards.

 

In discussion, the Board agreed by consensus to amend the following paragraph in the item, BR (A) 7, to read:  This proposal will give the portfolio schools time to adjust their program so that students will be successful in completing their courses, local portfolios and Regents exams.  It would also give a date certain for implementing the Regents exams with a passing score of 65 or above and for choosing portfolio assessments that can be submitted and reviewed by the State Assessment Panel.

 

         

MOVED,

that the Board of Regents approve the proposed schedule for meeting Regents exam requirements for students enrolled in the portfolio schools listed in item BR (A) 7.

          The Board received a presentation on the proposed amendment of sections 3.27 and 3.30 of the Regents Rules regarding the chartering, incorporation and registration of museums, historical societies and cultural agencies.

 

          The proposed amendment will clarify Regents standards for chartered museums and historical societies, provide a simplified incorporation for historical societies without collections, provide for increased financial, auditing and ethical oversight and protect collections and resources held in the public trust.

 

          The Board will take action on the proposed amendment in September.

 

Regents 2006-07 Proposal on State Aid to School Districts

BR (D) 4

 

          The Board reviewed the conceptual proposal for State Aid to School Districts for 2006-07.

 

          The current proposal incorporates the discussions held at the June meeting of the Subcommittee on State Aid regarding the direction for special education funding and funding for early childhood education.

 

          The proposal represents the third year of a proposal to establish a foundation aid program that adjusts for differences in school district pupil needs and regional costs.   Its goal is to close the achievement gap in a manner that is adequate, effective and efficient.

 

          The conceptual proposal will be submitted to the Board for action in September, followed by action in October on a completed proposal including requested financial resources.

 

Draft Regents Policy Statement on Early Education for Student Achievement in a Global Community

BR (D) 5

 

          The Board reviewed a draft early childhood policy statement, developed following the March 2005 Board approval of a framework for the policy.

 

          In 1992, the Board adopted its current early education policy, �Supporting Young Children and Their Families: A Regents Policy Statement on Early Childhood.�  Current research in early education and significant federal and State initiatives require a review and update of the policy.  This draft policy statement is based on recent research, consistent with new program initiatives, and fully aligned with the Regents strategic goals.

 

          The Board directed staff to disseminate the draft early childhood policy statement for public comment.

 

2006-2007 Budget Development Process

BR (D) 6

 

          The Board reviewed the proposed 2006-2007 budget initiatives in preparation for action in September.
