    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

    Please read on for more detailed information about this year’s exams:

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

    Health and safety are our first priorities. We are asking for you to sign up so we can create testing schedules and room assignments that allow for social distancing protocols. All schools will adhere to COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Visit schools.nyc.gov/RTShealthsafety to learn more.

    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,

  • Cost of damaged devices - student loan agreement - 4.30.21

    Greetings World View Community,

     

    Students have been permitted to borrow NYC DOE school devices (iPads, chromebooks) for at-home use during this period of remote/blended learning. As per the NYC DOE policy, families may be considered liable for the total or partial cost of the replacement of the device should your child intentionally destroy school property or be negligent in their care and/or usage of the device. It is important that students take responsibility and care for these devices.

    As a reminder, the Student Device Loan agreement you signed when requesting/picking up the device states:

    Students in need of remote learning can be issued a device for their educational use. If reasonable precautions and care are taken in the use of the device, the laptop should not experience physical damage. Each parent/guardian should review this form carefully with their child. 

    All devices issued to students are to be used to access remote learning and other educational uses. Students are expected to follow the guidelines below and take any additional common sense precautions to protect the device. Students are responsible for taking care of the device. The policies outlined in this document are intended to cover all available technologies, not just those specifically listed. 

    By accepting the equipment listed above, I agree to ensure that my child adheres to the following:

    Care and Maintenance 

    • The student/family is responsible for the daily care and maintenance of the laptop. Any damage or theft must be reported to the NYCDOE within one school day. 
    • Keep the laptop in a safe place when not in use. 
    • Students/families should report problems to 718-935-5100 or 311. Do not attempt to remove, add, or change the physical structure of the device, including keys, memory, battery, screen, charger, ID labels, etc. 
    • Carry the device carefully at all times. Do not store items on top of the device.

    Usage Guidelines

    In general, all students are expected to use good judgment and common sense; be safe, appropriate, careful and kind online; not attempt to get around technological protection measures; and ask an adult if they need help. 

    Student Acceptable Use Guidelines

    Students must:

    • Use the device provided only to access remote learning activities.
    • Follow the same guidelines for respectful, responsible behavior online that students are expected to follow offline.
    • Treat this device carefully, and alert the helpdesk there is any problem with the operation.
    • Understand that this equipment is property of the New York City Department of Education and should be treated as such. If equipment is stolen, a police report must be filed.
    • Alert a teacher or other staff member if students see threatening, inappropriate, or harmful content (images, messages, posts) online.
    • Be cautious to protect the safety of the student and others.
    • Help to protect the security of school resources.

    Students must not: 

    • Attempt to bypass the school’s mobile (internet) filter. 
    • Use this device in a way that could be personally or physically harmful. 
    • Attempt to find inappropriate images or content. 
    • Engage in cyberbullying, harassment, or disrespectful conduct toward others. Such conduct will result in disciplinary action and loss of privileges. In some cases, cyberbullying can be a crime. 
    • Try to find ways to circumvent the school’s safety measures and filtering tools.
    • Use school technologies to send spam or chain mail. 
    • Use language online that would be unacceptable in the classroom. 
    • Use school technologies for illegal activities or to pursue information on such activities. 
    • Attempt to hack or access sites, servers, or content that isn’t intended for student use. 
    • Alter a school’s device hardware or installed software. 

    Personal Safety and Privacy 

    • Users should never share personal information, including phone number, address, social security number, birthday, or financial information, over the Internet without adult permission. 
    • Users should recognize that communicating over the Internet brings anonymity and associated risks, and should carefully safeguard the personal information of themselves and others. 
    • Users should never agree to meet someone they meet online in real life without parental permission. If students see a message, comment, image, or anything else online that makes them concerned for their personal safety, they should bring it to the attention of an adult immediately. 

    Limitation of Liability 

    The NYCDOE will not be responsible for damage or harm to persons, files, data, or hardware. Devices employ filtering and other safety and security mechanisms, but there is no guarantee as to their effectiveness. The NYCDOE will not be responsible, financially or otherwise, for unauthorized transactions conducted over the school network. 

    Return of Device 

    This device is being loaned for the student’s use during remote learning. This device is the property of the NYCDOE and contains a tracking device so that the device can be located. This device must be returned when on-site learning resumes, unless otherwise instructed by the NYCDOE. 

    By signing this document, I agree that I have read and agree to ensure compliance with the above

     

    Should you have any questions or need any support please do not hesitate to contact the school. 

    Stay safe and healthy.

     

    Kind Regards,

    Courtney Cramer

  • 10 Day Bldg Closure Due to Multiple Confirmed Cases - 3.25.21

    Dear World View HS Community,

    I’m writing to inform you that following an initial 24 hour closure of our school building, the NYC Test Trace Corps (T2) and the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) have determined that the building must remain closed through 4/2/2021.

    Below you will find guidance that reflects the expertise of the DOHMH, the New York City Department of Education (DOE) and T2.

     

    What Happens Now? 

    ● The school building will remain closed through 4/2/2021, and all teaching and learning will continue remotely. Staff and students may return to school on 4/3/2021.

    ● Anyone with a positive COVID-19 test will not return to the school until they are no longer infectious. 

    ● Close contacts of the person who tested positive have been notified, and will continue their 10-day quarantine period. If additional close contacts are identified, they will also be instructed to quarantine for 10 days. 

     

    How Do We Stay Healthy? 

    Please remember to follow these important “Core Four” actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:  

    1. Stay home if sick (except to get essential medical care, including COVID-19 testing).

    2. Practice social distancing: Stay at least 6 feet away from people who are not members of your household. 

    3. Wear a face covering to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

    4. Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; avoid touching your face; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands. 

     

    How can I stay updated? 

    We will continue to closely follow directions from public health experts, and proactively update you on any measures we are taking. To ensure we can reach you via text and email, please create a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) as soon as possible by visiting schools.nyc.gov/nycsa. 

    To help New Yorkers quarantine, the NYC Test Trace Corps partners with community-based organizations to connect individuals to resources like food, medicine, and health care.  To connect with resources, you can call 1-212-COVID19 (212-268-4319).

    New York State is mandating all high schools to administer four Regents Exams in June 2021. 

    Students receiving remote instruction will not be made to come to school for the purpose of taking a Regents Examination. Therefore, students receiving remote instruction will not be scheduled for the June Regents Examinations unless requested.

    • Algebra I

    • Earth Science (written test only)

    • English Language Arts

    • Living Environment

    The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has cancelled the remaining Regents Examinations that were scheduled to be administered in June 2021. In addition, all of the Regents Examinations scheduled to be administered in August 2021 have also been cancelled.

    A schedule of administration dates for these four Regents Examinations is forthcoming.

    For more detailed information regarding the exemptions from Diploma Requirements and diploma endorsements, visit the NYSED website
