Approximately 50,000 commended students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although these students will not continue in the 2015 competition for Merit Scholarship awards, being named a Commended Student recognizes that these seniors are amongst the top third of the students who entered the competition by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

Opt Outs Impact Testing

Written by Dan Offner, floralpark@antonnews.com Thursday, 25 September 2014 00:00

As children all across Long Island head off to school, kids in grades 3-8 brace themselves for a new round of the New York State Common Core English Language Arts and Mathematics exams. For the Floral Park-Bellerose School District, the number of students opting out of the state exams stayed relatively low among students. Across Long Island, local “opt out” movements made a huge splash, with nearly 20,000 students—or 10 percent of students in grades 3-8, opting out, according to figures compiled by the New York State Allies for Public Education.

In response to concerns from school officials, parents, and teachers regarding the level of testing administered to children in grades 3-8,  U.S. Rep. Steve Israel joined 12 of Long Island’s school district superintendents, on Sept. 8, to present new legislation that would reduce the number of tests taken by students in grades 3-8.
