    WVHS Summer Rising Letter to Families - 6.9.2021

    Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:

    The NYC DOE has allocated funding for schools to create Summer Rising programs for students that are student-centered, experiential, academically rigorous and culturally responsive and sustaining. Our hope is to provide an opportunity for students to re-connect and re-engage with one another. 

    These are the academic opportunities we will be offering at World View this summer:

    Summer Academic Support (NX Tutoring)

    Students who received an NX in Fall and/or Spring must attend mandatory NX Summer Academic support to remediate these classes. Teachers will provide targeted instruction and support for students to complete their NX coursework remotely (Monday-Thursday, July 6 - July 16, 9 AM - 2 PM) and in-person (Monday-Thursday, July 19 - July 30, 9 AM - 2 PM).

    Remote Enrichment Courses (if enough students are interested)

    These pre-designed 1-credit courses will be taught through online work on Google classroom/meet. 

    • Financial Literacy: This pre-designed math-based course will provide students with real world skills in making smart financial decisions. 1 high school credit (July 6 - August 13, 9-11 AM)
    • Leadership: Believe, Lead, Change!: This pre-designed social studies & ELA-based course will prepare students with the leadership skills to be active and thoughtful participants of our society. (July 6 - August 13, 9-11 AM)

    Advanced Placement Summer Seminars

    • AP Seminar: This workshop will prepare students who will be enrolled in AP Seminar next year with the appropriate skills and knowledge. (Monday-Thursday, July 19 - July 30, 9 AM - 2 PM)
    • AP U.S. History: This workshop will prepare students who will be enrolled in APUSH next year with the appropriate skills and knowledge. (Monday-Thursday, July 26 - August 6, 9 AM - 2PM)

    Thematic Seminars - Enrichment, Community Building & Social-Emotional Support 

    These seminars will take students on an explorative journey of a particular topic/subject over the course of two weeks (Monday-Friday, August 2 - August 13, 9 AM - 2PM). Throughout the seminar, there will be opportunities for students to socialize and build community with one another through in-person learning and trips. 

    In addition, if any student needs additional course credits in Mathematics, Social Studies, English and/or Science to meet graduation requirements and it is not being offered at World View, then it will be available for students to take on Campus this summer

    We ask students to take the time to submit this survey to express their interest in the Summer Rising programs we will be offering. The survey is accessible via this link: https://forms.gle/ZenJCWJ1tu7xkvgJ8 

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call: (718) 601-0391 or email: info@worldviewhs.org

  • Chancellor's Family Letter - May 24, 2021

    Dear Families, 

    First, thank you. I know the past year has required resiliency, determination, flexibility, and sacrifices from all of us, and from you in particular. You have taken on new roles that many of you never imagined you’d have to take on, and have balanced so much while coping with losses and the many life challenges that COVID-19 brought to us over the past year. 

    As we close out this school year, I am looking forward to the opportunity that lies before us to reimagine what school is and means for your children. We know that we have to welcome our students back to a warm, welcoming, and affirming learning environment that challenges them academically while lifting them up when they need support. 

    As our schools work hard on re-imagining how we educate our children, I am excited to share with you our reopening plans for fall 2021. Based on available health indicators, we will return to full-time, in-person learning this September. This means that all students in grades 3-K through 12 will be learning in-person this fall. 

    All teachers and staff will also be returning to in-person instruction this fall. We are very grateful for the dedication of all our principals, teachers and school staff and recognize the hard work they have done during this challenging year, and we’re excited for your children to re-connect with their beloved teachers and school staff, in addition to their peers, this fall.

    As we prepare for your children, as well as teachers and staff, to return to schools, we will continue our commitment to prioritize health and safety first. With a current rolling 7-day COVID positivity rate of 0.16% and a consistently low transmission rate, our schools have a proven track record of being safe. We will meet whatever the CDC social distancing requirements are in September, and we expect that the city’s continuously improving health metrics may allow for more flexibility by the fall. Finally, in our commitment to keep health and safety a top priority, we plan to adhere to the many health and safety measures we had in place this past school year, including the following:

    • Masks will continue to be a requirement in all of our school buildings 
    • Individuals with COVID-19 symptoms will continue to be required to stay at home 
    • Students, teachers and staff will continue to complete the daily health screener at home 
    • Every school building will continue to have a nurse 
    • Every classroom will have working ventilation systems 
    • On-site COVID-19 testing will continue in school buildings as recommended by the latest health guidance 
    • The Situation Room will continue to support schools with next steps if there are positive cases
    We know that many of our students have not attended school in-person since March of 2020, and that returning to school in-person this fall will be an adjustment. We promise to do everything we can to welcome your children back and provide the supports needed to ensure a positive homecoming. We’ve already made investments to hire more teachers and social workers, and will have academic and social-emotional learning programs available to support our students. Here are some ways that we are supporting with the transition now, and we encourage you and your children to participate:
     
    Chancellor’s Borough-Wide Family Forums: I am hosting borough-wide family town halls to hear more from you about this fall, and how we can use our resources to ensure a positive homecoming for your children and provide an enriching and challenging academic experience that integrates social-emotional learning. To learn more and register, please visit us here: https://www.schools.nyc.gov/get-involved/families/familyempowerment/chancellor-porter-s-family-forums
    School Open Houses: Starting in June and throughout the summer, every school will host open houses for families to visit, take a tour, and learn about the health and safety precautions in place that have kept our schools safe over the last year. Your child’s school will be in touch with you about when these will be scheduled, and we encourage you to participate to learn more.
     
    Summer Rising: In partnership with the Department of Youth and Community Development, we are so excited to provide an enriching, fun and joyful summer camp experience for any interested student. We encourage your child to join us - to be welcomed back into their school communities, re-connect with teachers and staff, and get ready for fall while having fun! Families can sign up here: https://discoverdycd.dycdconnect.nyc/home
     
    Thank you for your partnership, your engagement, and your dedication to your children’s education over the last year. I am in awe of how our communities came together to lift each other up to ensure our children had the best experience possible despite enormous challenges. I am looking forward to partnering with you, learning from you, and leveraging all we‘ve done together over the last year to create a new normal starting in September - one that is warm and welcoming, affirming and enriching, and exciting and challenging - for each one of your children.
     
    In partnership,

  • NYC DOE June Regents Letter to Families - 5.14.21

    Dear Families,

    As we head into the spring, I know many of you have questions about the Regents exams. In a typical year, Regents exams are administered in June and August in 10 subject areas. This June, only 4 Regents subject exams will be administered – Algebra I, English Language Arts, Living Environment, and Earth Science. These exams will be administered in person in our school building. There will be no additional Regents administration scheduled for August. Certain students are eligible for Regents exam waivers, which count as a passing score for that exam for graduation. Waivers are available for all Regents exams subjects, including the 4 exams being administered in person. (See eligibility criteria described below.)

    Students who choose or are not able to take the June Regents exam(s) will receive a Regents waiver IF they pass the associated Regents course. For example, if you pass Algebra I (Fall) & Algebra II (Spring), then you are eligible for a Regents waiver for the Algebra Regents Exam even if you don’t take the Regents exam in June.

    It is very important you let us know if you would like your student to participate in this year’s Regents exams so that we can prepare and create a testing schedule that ensures the health and safety of all of our students. If you would like for your child to take the in-person Regents this spring, please notify us by emailing or calling your child’s guidance counselor by May 28th, 2021

    How will you keep my student safe during in-person test administration?

    How do I sign up for the exams?

    If you would like your child to participate in this year’s State exams, please notify us by emailing or calling your child’s guidance counselor by May 28th, 2021

    Is my student eligible for a Regents waiver?

    If your student is eligible for a Regents waiver, they can use this waiver toward graduation requirements and are not required to pass that Regents exam. To be eligible for a Regents exam waiver in June or August 2021, your student must pass the course sequence leading up to that Regents exam. You may wish to have your student take the Regents exam if they are not on track toward passing all of the necessary courses by June.

    Waivers are available for all 10 Regents exam subject areas. For more information on whether your student is eligible to receive a Regents waiver, contact your student’s guidance counselor or a school administrator. You can also review your student’s progress toward graduation in your NYC Schools Account by visiting schools.nyc.gov/nycsa.

    Can a student earn an Advanced Regents Diploma with a Regents Waiver?

    Yes. Any student granted a waiver is not required to pass such exam(s) necessary for any diploma type. This includes the Regents with Advanced Designation.

    If a student receives a Regents Waiver can they take the exam in the future?

    Yes. Any student granted a waiver is eligible to take a Regents exam during a future administration.

    If my student is already learning in the building, do I still need to sign up for the exams?

    Yes. You must let us know if you would like your student to take a Regents exam, whether they are learning in-person or remotely.

    My student is fully-remote. Are they expected to come in to take the exams?

    No. Students receiving fully-remote instruction are not expected to come to school to take the Regents exams. However, if you would like your student to take an exam, they can be included—just notify us using the contact information above.

    If my student does not take the exams, will they be penalized?

    No. Any student who does not participate in the 2021 June Regents exams will not be penalized. Your student may waive a Regents exam requirement for graduation provided that they meet specific eligibility criteria as described above.

    When are the exams?

    The exams will be administered within the following dates:

    •   English Language Arts – Thursday, June 17
    •   Living Environment – Tuesday, June 22
    •   Algebra I – Wednesday, June 23
    •   Earth Science – Thursday, June 24

    I have more questions. How can I learn more?

    You can also always reach out to your child’s guidance counselor with any questions or concerns. We are here to help.

     

    We appreciate your collaboration and flexibility as we continually work to ensure a strong, supportive education for your child and every student in our school community.

     

    Sincerely,

    Martin Hernandez
