It is not like NY state is in the tropics. How can there not be a plan B for things such as this ? Should have been in place from the beginning.

Is there a reason to think they are not going to reschedule the tests?

Without those graduates, Arne and his crew won't get their billions in funds promised by NCLB legislation from the G. Bush era. So sad! And those pricey Universities (think Harvard) won't get any student's to put into eternal debt!

"It is ridiculous that the state's Education Department doesn't have a formal policy to handle school cancellations on Regents test days. In a state doing everything it can to increase the number of students graduating from high school, It's bad that New York state didn't have a policy for such instances. Did it somehow slip through the cracks that New York state gets snow storms? We often hear school officials - both locally,statewide and nationally - justify new programs or new spending because "it will help the children." What is state officials' reasoning,for dragging its heels rescheduling the January Regents tests? Surely, it's not because it's what's best for the students." It's what's best for Arne Duncan and our Federal Department of Education!
