The New York State Education Department (SED) annually reviews the academic performance of each school, based on results of state assessments in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math as well as graduation rate. Under this accountability system, our district has been identified as a “Focus District,” and some of our schools have been identified as “Focus Schools.”
A Focus School is one in which the test results for one or more groups of students are below certain expectations set by SED. As a result of this designation, Focus Schools must develop and implement a plan for school improvement in order to improve academic achievement for all students in the school.
The following have been re-identified for improvement status in 2017-18. Use the links below to view the 2017-18 improvement plan for each school.
