WELCOME!

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL ZHANG REGARDING THE RESCHEDULING OF FINAL EXAMINATIONS: PLEASE READ 

"
Dear Parents/Guardians:

Since yesterday, many faculty members and I have received your feedback concerning the decision of rescheduling final exams for Friday, January 30th. Now that we have received an official announcement that school will be open tomorrow, I have made the following decision:

1.      Algebra II/Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus finals will be administered at 10:30 am tomorrow, Wednesday, January 28th.

2.      All other finals scheduled for today will be rescheduled for 10:30 am on Thursday, January 29th (unless you receive a separate notice specific to you).

A small number of students will have a conflict because they are also scheduled to take a Regents exam at 8:30 am on Wednesday. If you are one of them, please report to your final exam room as soon as you finish the Regents exam.

I hope this will help resolve any dilemma caused by the original change of exam schedule. Thanks to those who voiced your concerns. As always, your input is valued and appreciated. Please let me know if you have any questions and concerns.

Yours,

Jie Zhang
Principal"

SHSAT UPDATE
NYS Senator Adriano Espaillat introduced Bill S-1787 to “Authorize[s] the board of education of the city school district of the City of New York to establish standards for admission to special high schools” (http://open.nysenate.gov/legislation/bill/S1787-2015

(The special high schools include: Stuyvesant,Bronx Science, Brooklyn Tech, Staten Island Tech, Queens HS for the Sciences at York College, HS for Math, Science and Engineering at City College, HS for American Studies at Lehman college, Brooklyn Latin, Laguardia HS and all additional schools that the board of education of the city school district of the City of New York designates as special high schools)

Many Stuy parents attended the Dec 11 rally at City Hall to oppose the City Council Resolution to support the NYS bills to change the Specialized High Schools admissions policy from the current single, objective test admissions criterion to multiple, including subjective and non-academic, criteria. Many Stuy parents also testified at City Hall, signed petitions, and sent emails to legislators. Our voices make a difference! The resolution in the NYC Council may or may not come up for a vote. There will be more actions we can take as developments occur.
