WPCSD awarded "Teaching is the Core" grant
The Whitney Point Central School District is one of thirty-one grant awardees under New York State’s “Teaching is the Core” initiative. The grant was written as a consortium with Johnson City School District and Whitney Point School District. The grants, funded through New York’s federal Race to the Top grant, will support the district in their efforts to eliminate locally adopted tests that do not contribute to teaching and learning. In addition, these funds will help the district identify and improve high-quality assessments already in use that can be included as a component of multiple measures of student learning and school and educator effectiveness. Additionally, it will assist the district in establishing a professional development program that will aid teachers in identifying high-quality assessments and improving daily and periodic assessment practices.
