April 30, 2014 -- 110 North Shore students, or about 8% of those slated to take the exam, opted out of the grades 3-8 state Math assessments that were administered on Wednesday morning and that will continue through Friday. At the request of Northwordnews, Schools Superintendent Dr. Edward Melnick reported that 33 students refused the exam at Sea Cliff, 16 at Glen Head, 9 at Glenwood Landing, and 52 at the Middle School. The numbers were slightly higher in the elementary schools than on April 1, when 25 students at Sea Cliff, 14 at Glen Head, and four at Glenwood Landing opted out of the English and Language Arts (ELA) state assessment. At the Middle School, 35 fewer students refused the math exam as compared to the ELA when 87 opted out. However, exams were not administered today to 8th graders enrolled in Regents Algebra I. That assessment will be administered on June 5.
