On October 20th, the New York State Board of Regents will be voting on a proposal to move forward on Multiple Pathways to graduation. Anticipated is the adoption of a Pathway model that allows students the option to graduate by pursuing academics and personal interests through the selection of a Pathway in either CTE, the Arts, Humanities, STEM or an additional Regents exam. Your letter writing campaign is more important now than ever. Show your support in this CALL TO ACTION. Tell the Board of REGENTS that the Multiple Pathway diploma is a good decision. Check out www.nysacte.org for the listing of the Board of Regents and sample letters.
