Part 2 of Grade 8 NYS ELA Exam Moved to April 10

NO SCHOOL for Grades 6-7 on April 10

Due to a technical glitch with the state’s testing vendor (Questar Assessment Inc.) that interrupted the administration of the computer-based NYS ELA exam on Tuesday, April 2, the grade 8 exam has been rescheduled for Wednesday, April 10.  

Wednesday, April 10 is a scheduled K-12 half-day of school at BH-BL. Grade 8 students will be released from Part 2 of the NYS ELA exam at regular half-day dismissal time. If any students need extra time beyond dismissal hours to finish the ELA exam, alternate transportation will be provided.

In order to maintain a testing environment in the middle school for grade 8 students on Wednesday, April 10, there will be no school for students in grades 6 and 7 that day. All other grades will follow the previously planned half-day schedule.

If you have additional questions, please contact your child’s school.
