The implementation of the Science and Technology Concepts (STC) Elementary Program will continue, after being initially presented within grades 1-5 last year. This year, it will be extended to include kindergarten as well. Math is another area that will see some changes, as the elementary schools will incorporate some of the modules developed through EngageNY and the State Education Department into their program this year. Math progress report indicators have been revised to reflect the expectations of the Common Core Mathematical Standards. The four elementary schools, as well as John Jay Middle School, are also enhancing English Language Arts curriculum based on the CCLS, with inclusion of more nonfiction and informational, data-rich text sources.
New highlights at John Jay Middle School and John Jay High School will be shared in the coming weeks!
