    delay leads into a full snow day this decision will be made by 7 a m and communicated promptly If no closure is communicated parents should assume that school will open on the delayed schedule School delays or closure decisions will rarely be made the night before but may be necessary in extreme cases or when directed by state agencies The districts will follow established guidance for when severe cold warrants school closures or delays The New York Statewide School Health Services Center suggests that when wind chills reach 25 degrees school leaders should consider delays or closures The Schenectady County school districts are targeting consistent decisions about whether or not to close school across the county but they recognize that this will be difficult and not possible in all cases Families should continue to look to their local school district for information about closings or delays School superintendents are ultimately responsible for decisions about closing school When winter storms arrive they monitor weather reports and are in close contact with their transportation and facilities departments local highways departments and leaders of other districts Typically at least one person in each district is checking the roads in the pre dawn hours to help inform a decision about school The Schenectady County superintendents believe that the joint protocols will lead to improved communication and coordination across the county when storms hit aiding in cleanup efforts and limiting unnecessary travel For more information please contact Burnt Hills Ballston Lake Tara Mitchell 399 9141 x85041 tmitchell bhbl org Duanesburg Monique Jacobs 895 5350 x371 mjacobs duanesburg org Mohonasen Karen Nerney 356 8250 knerney mohonasen org Niskayuna Matt Leon 377 4666 x50707 mleon niskyschools org Schalmont Nanette Blake 355 9200 x6 nblake schalmont net Schenectady Karen Corona 370 8100 x40137 coronak schenectady k12 ny

    factors e g graduation rates test scores English language proficiency AND at least one additional factor such as school climate or access to advanced coursework When reporting on these factors states will have to break down the results by student subgroups including different ethnicities students with special needs and students with economic disadvantages In addition while NCLB set national goals for learning the new law allows states to set their own goals for things like proficiency on exams graduation rates and closing achievement gaps It is unclear how this new law will impact changes to New York s education system that are being considered This fall the state Education Department sought feedback on the state s learning standards and just last week Governor Cuomo announced the recommendations of his Common Core Task Force which include overhauling the state s learning standards and assessments Key things to know about the new education law Students will continue to be tested in grades 3 8 in ELA and math and once in high school and states must continue to break down data based on a set of subgroups States will have more discretion to determine how to weigh tests whether and how to evaluate teachers and how to turn around low performing schools However the new law lays out guidelines for state interventions in low performing schools districts or schools with low graduation rates Just as under NCLB the new law doesn t require states to adopt any specific set of academic standards Schools will still be required to have a 95 percent participation rate for state exams however it will be up to the states to decide how this factors into school accountability In addition rules or regulations relating to test refusal or opt outs are left to the states About Us
