Attention Current 6th & 7th GradeStudents -IS 7 Two Year Regents Track Requirements
IS 7 Two Year Regents Track Requirements 2022-2024
Students from our IS 7 class of 2024 will be assigned to the Regents track in September of 2022 if they meet the following criteria. Students will be placed into a Social Studies/English Language Arts Regents track and/or a Science/Math track based on a power score generated from the following requirements.
1. GPA in respective subject (ELA/SS, Math/Science)
2. Teacher Survey
3. Score on Baseline Exam
4. Score on in-school writing assessment (to be given in-school)
5. Performance on NYS Standardized Exams
The baseline exams will be administered on the following dates:
- Saturday, April 2nd (8 am to 9:45 am)
- Saturday, April 9th (8 am to 9:45 am)
- Monday, April 4th through Friday, April 8th (2:00-3:45)
**Please note that school buses will not be available during these times and you are responsible to make travel arrangements for your child to and from IS 7 on the day of the baseline exam.
An OPEROO form will be emailed prompting you to select a date to register for the baseline.
The absence of a score in any of the previously mentioned criteria will impact your child’s overall Power Score, which impacts their ranking and chance to be assigned into one of our Regents tracks.
*Placement in all of the above is contingent on licensing and budget.
It is the responsibility of the parent to speak to prospective High Schools to determine if they will accept scores from the students taking the exams in the 8th grade. Public schools are required to accept the exam scores but private and Catholic high schools make their own decisions.Elias Bernstein Intermediate School 7

Sugar is IS 7's very own adorable Comfort Dog. As many of you already know, IS 7 is part of the NYC DOE Office of Safety and Youth Development Comfort Dog Program. The 2020-2021 school year is Sugar's fourth year here at IS 7! Although Covid has made our time with Sugar in the building a little difficult this year, she is always eager to join a Google Meet. Ask your teachers to invite her to your online classes!
Sugar is going to be six years old in September 2021 and she is a lovable terrier mix breed. She keeps busy going on long walks, playing with her favorite toys and practicing some "tricks" for delicious treats. She can’t wait to be back in a classroom with the students soon!
