Central Islip Public Schools’ curriculum aligns with the New York Common Core Learning Standards, which have the main goal of preparing students for college and their careers as much as possible.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Central Islip District Curriculum
English Language Arts in elementary school begins with the fundamentals of reading and writing. As they progress, students learn about literary devices hyperbole and paradoxes, and learn how to utilize context in their readings to understand figurative speech. They analyze character development as well. Students identify the means by which authors bring characters to life, including the use of first and third person perspectives to offer a more complete picture of a character.
Both formal and informal assessment data via state standardized tests, district-level exams, observations and anecdotal records, A.P. enrollment, etc. drive the district’s reviewing and evaluating of the curriculum. The district welcomes input from the community as to how the curriculum can be enhanced. The high school curriculum is designed to meet the needs of students with various future aspirations, such as high school, technical school, and working right out of high school.

Chalk Talk: How Snow Days Impact Teachers
When winter is in full force, and northern parts of the U.S. see snowstorms and bitterly cold temperatures, children will likely see a few school days. Just because they have school off doesn’t necessarily mean they can’t do any learning. With extreme winter weather causing more school closings, some schools are considering holding virtual classes on canceled days. Even if they don’t, teachers can post content reviews, mathematical word problems, writing prompts, etc. and be sure to make parents aware that these items are being posted. Although they may not be able to grade these things, students who do complete and read the material will have their memories refreshed and will have gained extra practice. An idea is for teachers to post extra credit assignments on snow days that must be completed and brought back the next day school is open to earn the credit. /p>
