Instruction

The District mission statementAchievement, Character, and Success for Life…ACSarticulates the fundamental purpose of the Office of Instruction. We collaborate with stakeholders to support the Mission and prepare students to be ready for life both during school and after graduation. 

Together, teachers and administrators have established a strong curriculum foundation aligned to New York State Standards. The curriculum is actualized in the classroom through instruction that is rigorous, engaging and student centered. Questions or information requests about curriculum, instruction and assessment can be directed to our office.

Once this has been received your child will be unenrolled. The following items should be submitted at the appropriate time during the year: 

  • The IHIP:  The Individualized Home Instruction Plan provides an overview of the content areas that must be taught at each grade level.  When developing the IHIP, please ensure that course titles correspond to those listed on the enclosed guideline.  The IHIP is due to the District Office within four weeks of receipt of this mailing, or by August 15th, whichever is later.  Within ten business days of the receipt of the IHIP or by August 31st, whichever is later, the school district shall either notify the parents that the IHIP complies with the requirements of subdivisions (d) and (e) of the Regulations or shall give the parents written notice of any deficiency in the IHIP.
