NEW YORK STATE DIPLOMA CRISIS ADVOCACY

 

Connetquot Superintendent Lynda Adams and Assistant Superintendent of Special

Education Monica Manzi wrote a letter on behalf of SEPTA to NYS Education

 Commissioner Mary Ellen Elia and the New York State Board of Regents advocating for

 diploma options for our students. Their suggestions to SED are to improve pathways to

 a valid diploma and  include allowing students with disabilities who pass their course of

 study to obtain a diploma endorsed by NYSED without the added burden of passing

 Regents Exams.
