It’s official -- there will be no June Regents exams for students in New York this year. The state Education Department released guidelines for schools Tuesday, explaining how this will impact graduation requirements.

Students who would’ve taken a Regents exam in June 2020 are not required to take the test as long as they pass or earn credit for the class. If a student fails a Regents course, they’ll need to go to summer school and will have to take a Regents exam in August.

Schools in New York have been closed since mid-March and it’s uncertain when they’ll reopen. Gov. Cuomo extended the closure Monday through April 29, but that could change.
