Regional Meetings

The Board of Regents and State Education Department will host regional meetings across the state to gather feedback on what a state diploma should signify to ensure educational excellence and equity for every student in New York State. The meetings are an integral part of Phase I in the Board and Department’s review of graduation measures and will offer opportunities for stakeholders and members of the public to share input.

At least one meeting will be held in each judicial district through April 2020. The meeting will be led by the local Board of Regents Member, the BOCES District Superintendent, or Big Five district staff. The meetings will include the opportunity for attendees to break out into small groups to discuss and provide feedback on each of five guiding questions.

If you cannot attend a meeting, please complete our online survey of the 5 guiding questions to provide feedback.

The list of meetings scheduled to date is below. Please note meeting dates are being added and modified. Please check back often for the latest information.

Please Note: If you are deaf or hard of hearing and will require an accommodation at the meeting, please notify the meeting host in advance.
