published misinformation

Frustratingly, not all the information you’ll find out there when researching is factually correct. 

A parent asked me this morning about a blurb on HSMSE’s website (High School for Math, Science, and Engineering), which states their open house date is published in the specialized high school handbook (screen grab below) and when she looked, she couldn’t find the info. That’s because it’s not there. Handbooks are printed before most schools have their fall open house/tour dates set. 

While one would expect and hope info shared, either by schools or the DOE is correct, sometimes it isn’t. If you come across something that doesn’t make sense, reach out to the school or the DOE for clarification. You can also ask me and I’ll do my best to get to the bottom of it.
