    On Dec. 21, 2021, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) announced that all Regents exams scheduled for Jan. 25-28, 2022, have been canceled.

    This means that General Brown students who are enrolled in courses that would have culminated with a January 2022 Regents exam who pass the course will be exempt from passing the Regents exam to graduate.

    At this time, no decisions have been made regarding the June and August 2022 Regents examinations or any other State assessment programs.

  • Fill out form to ensure free or reduced meals

    General Brown CSD is asking families that have not submitted the annual Free and Reduced Price Lunch (FRPL) form for this year to do so to ensure qualified students will continue to receive meals in the fall of 2021.

    Currently, all students in the General Brown Central School District can receive free meals whether attending in-person or remote classes. This USDA funding will continue until the end of this school year. Although parents/guardians do not need to fill out any forms to receive this year’s free meals, once this program ends, only those who qualified and completed the FRPL form will continue to receive the benefit.

    Read more about the benefits of submitting the FRPL form.
