On Tuesday, July 25, 2017, the New York State Education Department notified the Connetquot Central School District that, “As a result of a discrepancy in the wording of Question 24 [of the Geometry Regents], this question does not have one clear and correct answer. Students who selected answer choice 1, 3, or 4, or who did not choose an answer for this question, should be awarded credit. Students who selected answer choice 2, the answer indicated in the Scoring Key, have already received credit for this question.”

As a result of this notification, the District is working diligently to review our students’ assessments and update their Regents scores, course averages and report cards where appropriate. The District will notify those students who, based on the additional points, now achieved a passing score on the Geometry Regents immediately. This would eliminate the need to retake the Regents Examination in August.
