Uh, hate to break it to you but the passing grade is determined by NYS Education law and it is 65 in ALL NYS schools. Has been for decades.
Oh really? Because the only time we had to get a 65 was during a regents, NOT during the school year. 70 was passing at West Canada the ENTIRE time I was in school (which was K-12). I specifically remember having friends at schools in the area (Ilion, Mohawk, LF, Herk, etc...) that were 65 and I was envious of that. Now I'm glad that I was challenged more!! So either they are just assholes or you are wrong. I'm going to go with the latter of the 2.

So go there then. Nobody is chaining you to Herkimer. Ask the Tangorra kids next year if they are glad they are going to school in Ilion. Will they even be going to Ilion? If not why not. If so then ask them a few months into the schoolyear if they are glad they are there. But make sure daddy Tangorra isn't listening in so they can give you an honest answer.
My thoughts exactly. To bad daddy may have waited a bit to long to pull them out of Herkimer. They may never catch up to the great education Ilion students have been given. It's no wonder any of us have become successful coming out of such a "horrible" school system. If Ilion was so blessed with all the best of everything and Herkimer was "so bad" don't you think his kids would have been there long ago? I know mine would have been. Move on people.

Unless you went to school over 25 years ago, then the passing minimum across the state has been 65 since approximately 1985.

end of story.

We all have a choice. Instead of carrying on like bickering kids just realize you have a choice to make as a parent. Of course it's tough to pick up & start over, find a new school & all that. But it can be done. Others have done it. We're going to do it and we don't ever fault anyone who is staying. It's their choice. We all know Herkimer schools are suffering financially & whether you want to believe it or not, performance is documented to be below average. We've gone over this ad nauseum. What else is there to say that hasn't been said a million times other than look at your kids, do your job as a parent and consider what is best for your own child, then make a choice - stay or go.

The only way our school can survive without the merger, is to have double digit tax increases for the next 10 years. That means people will have to vote to over ride the tax cap every year by a majority vote of 60%. If this is correct, and I think it is, we are done.
