elimination of January Regents exams and Foreign Language Regents exams
developed by State Ed.
Beginning with the 2011-12 school year, the state will no longer create language Regents and provide them to school districts. However, school districts may develop their own language Regents exams and give a locally-developed test as a Regents exam.
