State: 4,660 seniors yet to pass HSAs
Liz reports that, according to state officials, 4,660 seniors of 53,000 in the class of 2009 have yet to pass the HSAs.
In the city, though, 1,759 Bridge projects were submitted in March, and more than 75 percent of seniors have fulfilled their HSA/Bridge obligations. With one more test administration and two more project submission dates to go, Dr. Alonso says he's optimistic. As I mentioned yesterday, Northwestern had further to go than nearly every high school in the state last fall, and most of its seniors have gotten through; the principal predicts that only a handful of students who blew off opportunities for extra help will be denied diplomas.
