New York State Learning Standards
New York State has released new revised Next Generation Learning Standards. The newly revised learning standards have been the result of over two years of collaborative work to ensure New York State has the best learning standards for our students. Over 130 educators and parents worked together to make recommendations and revise the standards, resulting in a new set of revised English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Standards. http://www.nysed.gov/next-generation-learning-standards
The Whitney Point School District closely monitors the changes in state standards to ensure that students are prepared to meet grade-level expectations. Engageny.org is an excellent resource for learning more about grade level and subject area expectations. The website has a section dedicated to providing helpful information for parents and families.
The New York State Education Department (NYSED) is developing a Parent Dashboard to increase transparency and make information about school performance and other school-level data easier for parents and the public to access.
