The Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) will be administered, as per state law, and registration for that exam begins Monday, Dec. 21. Test administration will begin Jan. 27, though de Blasio admits that the process is not entirely fair and needs improvement.
The NYC Schools Enrollment team will offer more support than ever before going forward, according to Carranza, in multiple languages. All rising middle school and high school families will receive additional detailed updates on how these changes will affect them and help with finding the right school for their family. The goal of these changes is to ensure that all NYC classrooms reflect the great diversity that is NYC, says de Blasio.
