Your P12 Education/ACCES Joint Committee held its scheduled meeting on December 16, 2013.

Proposed amendment of section 100.7 of the Regulations of the Commissioner, relating to the transition to the new High School Equivalency Test – Your Committees recommend that paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of section 100.7 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education be amended, as submitted, as an emergency action effective January 1, 2014, upon a finding by the Board of Regents that such action is necessary for the preservation of the general welfare to timely provide candidates for a high school equivalency diploma with the ability to use their passing scores on up to four sub-tests on examination(s) taken in calendar years 2002 through 2013 for the English version of the examination (and 2003 through 2013 for the Spanish version) as passing scores on the corresponding sub-tests of the new examination prescribed for the program and administered on or after January 1, 2014 and before January 1, 2016.
