Buffalo District and Curriculum
The curriculum in Buffalo frames the learning in the academic subjects by laying out the grade-level expectations and learning objectives for all content areas. The curriculum which is used is meant to answer four essential questions: What do we want a student to know and be able to do? How will we know if the student learned it? What will we do if the student hasn’t learned it? What will we do if they have? Students demonstrate their abilities through class work, independent projects, collaborative work, and standardized assessments. These help educators recognize the strengths and weaknesses of each student and target instruction accordingly.

About Buffalo, New York
Buffalo is located in the state of New York and is the second largest city in the state, spanning an area of about 52.5 square miles.

Its proximity to Lake Erie has also helped to contribute to the high moisture levels in the city that help to produce heavy Winter snowfalls in the area. Buffalo’s economy has been previously focused on industrialization, shifting recently to focus on health care and higher education. The name Buffalo came from a creek in the area that was called “Buffalo Creek”. Two previous American presidents, Grover Cleveland and William McKinley have also hailed from Buffalo.

Chalk Talk: Avoiding Senioritis
The last year of high school can be difficult, especially once winter break hits. Everyone is ready for graduation! But beware: You’re not done yet. The grades still count, and the teachers will continue to expect your best work. To keep “senior-itis” at bay, focus on your goals after high school. Even if you haven’t chosen a college or major yet, use the last semester of your senior year to prepare. What skills will you need? What areas of your writing need improvement? Is there still a question you wish you could ask one of your teachers? Your high school teachers have more time for you than your college professors will, so take advantage of their knowledge while you can. Oh—but make sure to save some time for fun!
