Greetings Maine-Endwell Families,

 

What a whirlwind this year has been! As we move into the final weeks, we know that students and staff will be extremely busy with end of the year events and reviewing and taking final exams. With all of the excitement it is easy to lose focus on academics. We ask your help in keeping students focused on school responsibilities these last few days of school.

 

Maine-Endwell Senior High School is designated a Reward School by the state Regent!

We are so proud to be named a reward school by the state regent. This designation requires that the school meet a number of academic requirements in these areas:

  • High Graduation rates

  • High Percentage of Advanced Designation Diplomas

  • Top 20% for English and Math performance for last 2 consecutive years

  • Students earning certification in CTE Programs (BOCES)

  • Be a Gap Closing school with Special Education Students

Again, we are very excited and fortunate to hear that we are one of only 87 high schools in the entire state (including charter schools and NYC) to meet all of these requirements, and the only one in the Broome Tioga BOCES Region. We know that, along with extremely dedicated staff and students, a key factor to our success is a supportive and involved community. Thank you for all you do to support the Maine-Endwell Senior High School!

Student Safety:

As we move into the end of the year and prom season, we would like to remind students and parents of the importance of making safe driving decisions. This was a combination of efforts of our SADD club, Broome County STOP DWI, Student council and our After Prom Committee. We would like to thank our local STOP DWI program for helping to provide police officers for our after prom events.

 

Exam Schedule:

Please review the attached exam schedule with your child. If you child has conflicts in testing, please contact our guidance office immediately so that we can assure they take all of their exams. Regents exam times are mandated by the state and take priority. They would then take their final exam as a make-up.

 

Please be aware that a regulation prohibiting the possession of any electronic device in any Regents examination room has been implemented. This means that any student found to have a cell phone or other unauthorized electronic device such as the new smart watches, (whether they used it or not) is subject to having their test invalidated. We encourage students not to bring their phones to the high school on testing days. We have multiple public phones for their use if the need arises.  Here is a link with the Exam schedule and busing schedule:  http://www.me.stier.org/2017RegentsTesting.aspx
