On October 20, the State Board of Regents approved multiple pathways to high school graduation, in the arts, humanities, CTE and STEM fields, and Shaker High School students and educators helped make the case to do so.
Recently, the New York State Education Department interviewed a number of students in Shaker’s foreign-language program, as well as Foreign Language Department Supervisor Galina Kats
and Principal Richard Murphy, about the benefits of studying foreign languages and how it may help them become career and college ready.
The Board of Regents viewed the video before approving the initiative that will offer students new opportunities to develop college and career-ready skills. It was also shown at the press conference announcing the decision, and was sent to educators and political leaders throughout the state by Commissioner of Education John King.
