"TEACHING IS THE CORE"

  • Please click HERE for the "Teaching is the Core" District Action Plan
  • Click HERE to download the Teaching to the Core Grant Announcement.
  • Click HERE to download the Teaching Is the Core Parent Letter
  • The Catskill Central School District] received a grant called, Teaching is the Core. The grant includes funds to support the creation of a Parent Engagement Program that may include hands-on learning and information about the Common Core Learning Standards. What [your district] wants to know is what do YOU want to know, learn, or be able to communicate with your child when it comes to the Common Core? This INTEREST INVENTORY will answer that question for your district who will use the information to craft a Parent Engagement Program for you.
    Your input is confidential. Your response will be analyzed as part of ALL responses from ALL parents that participate. Your district will post results on its website once all the data is submitted. Thank you for your participation.
  • Catskill Central School District (CSD) is part of a consortium of local school districts led by Questar III BOCES that received a $399,314 “Teaching is the Core” grant from the New York State Education Department to review and improve student assessment practices this school year.  Wynantskill UFSD will work with Brunswick CSD, Cairo-Durham CSD, Coxsackie-Athens CSD, Hoosick Falls SD, Hudson City CSD, New Lebanon CSD, North Greenbush CSD, Questar III BOCES, Rensselaer City CSD, Tech Valley High School, and Wynantskill UFSD.
  • As part of this grant, each District has organized a review team comprised of teachers and administrators to identify and improve assessments. Through the assessment review process, a total of 453 teacher created assessments were collected and reviewed throughout the Questar III region.  The recommendations given to the region as a result of the 453 assessments reviewed were to keep/maintain 317 assessments, revise 60 assessments and eliminate or significantly revise 76 assessments.   
  • As the process continues, Districts will now develop an action plan to address the results of the assessment review including identifying and implementing performance-based assessments that can be used to measure student learning and school and educator effectiveness. This may include essay writing, completion of projects, real-world problem solving skills, and experiments where students demonstrate knowledge and skills.
  • Districts will also establish a parent engagement program to share information concerning how parents can support learning at home and how assessments inform instruction and help children learn.
  • “Ultimately, high-quality assessments – and the feedback they provide to teachers, students and parents – are an integral part of excellent teaching and advancing student achievement,” said former Questar III District Superintendent James N. Baldwin.

District Magazine

The Catskill Central School District Distributes a Monthly Newsletter Magazine. The newsletters focus and celebrate the very positive events occurring in the Catskill Central School District. This newsletter is not to replace any of the excellent building and departmental newsletters that are currently distributed in the schools, but to continue to enhance and showcase the great work of our students and staff district-wide.
