               SUPERINTENDENTS, CHILDREN FIRST NETWORKS, AND SCHOOL
               PRINCIPALS

FROM:          Annie Finn, Director of School Budget Planning and Operations

SUBJECT:       Specialized High School Admissions Testing


This memorandum describes the resources provided to school locations administering the
Specialized High School admissions test.

One of the goals of the Children First reform agenda is to ensure that all students have the
opportunity to succeed in 21st-century workplaces and communities. New York City’s specialized
high schools (Bronx High School of Science, Brooklyn Technical High School, Stuyvesant High
School, the High School for Math, Science and Engineering at City College, Queens High School
for Sciences at York College, Staten Island Technical High School, Brooklyn Latin and High School
of American Studies at Lehman College) provide an intensive focus on specific subjects for
students who are interested in careers in specific areas.

The allocation below is for testing associated with entrance to the specialized schools (not with
school costs). Testing site schools will be expected to provide a detailed account of the use of
these funds upon request. The allocation provides funding to cover per session activities and
OTPS costs in preparation and the administration of the test including teachers, paraprofessionals,
school aides, security, guidance counselors, postage and supplies. An amount of $12,645 will be
allocated to the Office of Student Enrollment to cover administrative costs. The allotments in Table
1 below will be placed in TL One Time Allocation HS.
