Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) is well established at the elementary level. Both elementary buildings have developed a behavioral expectations matrix. Assemblies are conducted to recognize students who successfully complete the matrix. This celebration is attended by the entire student body, faculty, staff, parents and friends.
Response to Intervention (RTI) is established at the elementary level. A strong three tiered approach to academic and behavioral supports are in place. Meetings are conducted on a regular basis to ensure that students receive the interventions that are warranted.
Teacher retention rate is high throughout the District. Faculty members join the District and typically stay throughout their career.
Music Program: The District boasts a strong music program. Every year students in grades 5-12 participate in a District-wide concert. Students also access special music related opportunities such as P.E.A.K. (Parents, Educators and Kids) in grades 4-5, New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA), and All County to name a few county-wide music opportunities.
Art Program: The District also celebrates the Arts with a District-wide art exhibit each spring. Student artwork in grades K-12 are selected for this special showing.
Community Support: The community is supportive of all of our educational program. Volunteers assist in classrooms, at sporting events, with the music and art programs and drama productions.
