Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I’ll be happy to assist you.
New York State High School Graduation Requirements differ depending on the year a student first enters 9th grade. Students can obtain a Graduation Requirements card from their Guidance Counselor. The cards outline the credits, Regents examinations, and scores required for high school graduation. Graduation Requirements cards are color-coded and dated to correspond to the year of initial entry into 9th grade. The cards are intended to help students and parents, in consultation with the school counselor, determine the number of credits, the distribution of credits by subject area, and the scores required on the Regents Exams to receive a local, Regents, or Advanced Regents diploma. A Diploma Requirements Worksheet can help track student academic progress throughout high school.
Regents Examinations are statewide standardized examinations in core high school subjects required for a Regents Diploma in New York State. Regents Diplomas are optional and typically offered for college bound and non-disabled students. Most students, with some limited exceptions, are required to take the Regents Examinations. To graduate, students are required to have earned appropriate credits in a number of specific subjects by passing year-long or half-year courses, after which they must pass Regents Examinations in some of the subject areas. For higher achieving students, a Regents with Advanced Designation and Honors designations are also offered.

Thanks. I need to get the regents results for all grades and subjects. This site does not provide all this information. Please provide a site that has all this information.
Thanks - have called Albany in the past - The usual response I got was very rude and rarely reply.
Is there a federal database of this type of information, there must be.
Any suggestion where I would start collecting the data.
Links to website would be appreciated.
