Clay District and Curriculum
The students of Clay, New York, are served by the Liverpool Central, Baldwin Central, North Syracuse Central, and Phoenix Central School Districts. Since 1996 the New York State Learning Standards have guided education in New York State. These standards, which were updated in 2005, outline benchmarks for student achievement in subjects such as the arts, science, social studies, and health. Until recently, the standards also guided the development of ELA and Math curricula.
We currently cover the following Clay-area school districts: Baldwin Central School District, Liverpool Central School District, North Syracuse Central School District, and Phoenix Central School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clay District Curriculum
Today, the development of English Language Arts and Math curricula is based on the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards. The state adopted these standards in 2011. In doing this the state has attempted to develop new curricula that rely less on having students memorize and recite facts, and rely more on developing practical skills. From the earliest grades, Clay’s English Language Arts students are expected to read widely in both fiction and non-fiction texts. Students are also expected to master the skills needed for research, using evidence, and writing critically.
Clay’s math curriculum eschews old ideas about students merely scratching the surface of important ideas and learning a little about a lot of different things. Instead, the math curriculum focuses on only the most important core concepts in mathematics. Students build on and increase their understanding of the concepts from grade-to-grade, which allows them to develop a sophisticated understanding of mathematics concepts.

Chalk Talk: Screen Time
Few battles rage as fiercely in U.S. homes as the Tech Battles. There are arguments over TV time, phone time, video game time, computer time, and tablet time. Screen time, a concept that was more-or-less non-existent only 10 years ago, is now a central issue for many families. Ten years ago a parent could assume that most time spent in front of a screen was wasted. That is not so today. Between apps and educational videos, students can use screen time to access endless learning opportunities. Parents need to recognize this. Learning methods have changed. A child staring at a screen might very well be learning something important. However, parents also have to be savvy enough to know when a child is trying to pull a fast one. After all, no teacher assigns first-person shooters as homework.
