NEW YORK - New Regents requirements set to go into effect in 2017 have now been pushed back another five years.

The Board of Regents panel recommended delaying the phase-in of exams based on the more difficult Common Core standards.

“The phase-in of Common Core regions exams will take place over the next four years,” said Dr. John King, Commissioner of Education. “But the first class required to perform at a level that predicts college and career success will be the class of 2022."

Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a response to this decision saying, "These recommendations are simply too little, too late for our parents and students."
