SHSAT and Albany update

For those following the SHSAT saga, the legislative session in Albany ended yesterday and there were no changes made to the specialized high school admissions method. So, for your kids, the SHSAT is it.

Keep in mind that the Mayor is holding out up to 20% (1000 or so seats) for kids in the Discovery Program - kids who take the SHSAT, miss the cut off, and then take a class over the summer to get them up to speed. These seats are not available to everyone - they’re for economically disadvantaged students in high poverty schools only.
