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.

Central Islip District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Central Islip Public Schools consist of eight schools and 6,500 students. There is an early childhood center, four elementary schools, two middle schools, and a high school. The district’s vision is to provide students with rich learning experiences to help them blossom into contributing citizens of a global society. 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. Another key factor is for teachers to differentiate instruction to meet the individualized learning and assessment needs of each student within the framework of these standards.
We currently cover the following Central Islip-area school district: Central Islip Public Schools.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

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>
