The dates for the January, June, and August 2022 Regents Examination periods are being provided at this time to assist schools and districts with developing their local school calendars for the 2021-22 school year. We very much appreciate all the input from superintendents and other school and district leaders that enabled us to arrive at these dates.
The Regents Examination periods are determined with the following factors taken into consideration: The January examination period is four days, and is scheduled close to the end of the month. The June 2022 examination period is seven days, scheduled close to the end of the month but allowing at least two weekdays in June after the examination period ends. The August examination period is two days, and is scheduled to allow for a 30-day summer school session ending with the examinations.
Specific examination schedules for these three examination periods will be provided near the end of this school year. Prior to finalizing the schedules, we will be providing drafts and asking for feedback regarding the draft schedules in much the same way that we sought out and utilized feedback from school and district leaders on these final dates.
