The announcement of the NYS State Board of Regents P-12 Education and Higher Education Committees adopting several measures to adjust the implementation of the new Common Core Standards was breaking news yesterday. Additional information and guidance from NYSED will be made available in the near future. It is far too early to address the changes made by the Board of Regents concerning the Common Core, assessments and staff evaluations. Once we receive official guidance from NYSED more details will be provided. Our District will continue to work to implement changes in our educational program. I appreciate your professionalism and commitment to our District mission of, “cultivating engaging, diverse, and challenging educational opportunities and learning environments to promote life-long learning and achievement in preparation for high school graduation, college and careers.”
With the unprecedented use of five snow days, the Lake Shore Central School District is seeking to recover instructional time for students and teachers by revising in-service schedules for teachers and early dismissals for students.
The 2013 state test scores reflect new, challenging standards for student learning. Parents should be aware that these test results are a new starting point and should not be compared to prior years' scores. A letter from the NYS Commissioner of Education clarifies the changes.
The New York State Education Department has created a website to provide more information to parents, educators and citizens about the Regents Reform Agenda and Commom Core Curriculum. EngageNY.com offers excellent resources for families and school community members to understand and navigate the changes that are being implemented across the State.
Parents across New York State want to know more about the Common Core State Standards and State Assessments
