NEW YORK STATE SCHOOL REPORT CARDS FOR THE 2001/02 SCHOOL YEAR
New York State School Report Cards for the 2001/02 school year are now available online
The latest school report cards were recently released by the State Education Department. The data show continued general improvement, but significant gaps still exist for poor and minority students. Annual high school graduation numbers are remaining stable as more of the testing requirements are phased in. Also, the percent of students receiving a Regents Diploma (as opposed to simply a high school diploma which required the passage of 4 Regents exams for graduation in 2002) increased to 54.8% in 2002, from 39.6% in 1996. The Regents Diploma is the optional higher level designation to which students can aspire. It requires students to pass eight Regents Exams (rather than the five now required for a high school diploma).
