Some Edward Smith School students will have to re-take the Integrated Algebra Regents exam, following an â??improprietyâ?? during testing.
The Syracuse City School District issued this response to our request for comment:
â??The New York State Education Department has invalidated the test results for the Integrated Algebra Regents Examination administered on June 12, 2013 at Edward Smith K-8 School after they concluded that a testing impropriety had taken place. The Syracuse City School District is working very closely with the State Education Department during this ongoing investigation. All students affected will be eligible to retake the exam in August or January and the District will offer an optional refresher Integrated Algebra course for students in preparation of the August 2013 and/or January 2014 exam.â??
