2024 - January Examinations Information
In an effort to minimize the amount of testing administered to students on a given day, the Onteora High School is spreading out the midterm examination window from January 16th through January 26th.
January 16th – January 22nd
During this time period, several courses will be administering midterms during their regularly scheduled class periods. All students are expected to attend school and follow their normal daily schedule during this time period. All BOCES programs will continue to be in session and students are expected to attend their career and technology programs.
January 23rd – January 26th
Only students who have been scheduled to take exams need to be in attendance. Students will be provided with their exam locations by their teachers/school counselors. There will be a midday bus run home for high school students leaving between 11:10 and 11:15 if they are done with their exams for the day.
In the event of a two or three-hour delay or school closing, check the website for any rescheduled course exam dates and times.
If school is closed on a date that Regents are being given, the state may allow students to take the Regents on a different day during the Regents administration period. Please check the high school’s website to see if a cancelled exam has been rescheduled.
If there is a two-hour delay, morning Regents will begin at 9:45 A.M. promptly (no admittance after 10 A.M.) and afternoon Regents will begin at their normal time of 11:30 A.M. DO NOT USE THE TIMES LISTED ON THE STATE’S WEBSITE FOR REGENTS!
Career and Tech Program - Students who participate in the Career and Tech Program are expected to attend their BOCES classes (1/16-1/26) unless they are scheduled to take an exam at the high school. Students taking exams will be provided with a signed BOCES form so that they can be legally excused from BOCES.
Throughout the exam week, there will be a 4:20 P.M. and a 5:15 P.M. late bus departing from the high school.
