East Patchogue District and Curriculum
Two public school districts strive to meet the educational needs of K-12 students in East Patchogue. Most students attend classes in the Patchogue-Medford School District, while students in the easternmost part of the city attend school in the South Country Central School District. The former has 11 schools and approximately 8,700 students, while the latter is a smaller district, with just seven schools. Both schools share a common vision and mission of graduating students that are well prepared for college or career. Both districts are able to accomplish this mission by imparting knowledge and helping students develop their full capabilities. Educational tasks are undertaken in schools that have dedicated staff members who work diligently to meet the individual needs of each student.
We currently cover the following East Patchogue-area school districts: Patchogue-Medford School District and South Country Central School District.

Chalk Talk: Advantages and Disadvantages of E-Textbooks
Some public school districts have made the move from traditional textbooks to e-textbooks. This change has been undertaken in part because e-textbooks don’t require a continual budget to upkeep and replace old books, offering significant financial savings. Because e-books are displayed on laptops, tablets, and e-readers, students no longer have to carry around a backpack full of heavy textbooks either. Additionally, as e-textbooks have become more and more sophisticated, they allow kids to highlight passages, bookmark pages, look up unfamiliar words, and connect to online content related to their reading. However, there are some disadvantages. Some e-textbooks cannot be purchased in perpetuity, but rather expire after a specific period of time. Additionally, some e-textbooks can only be accessed from one device, so if a student forgets his or her tablet at school they may be unable to access their e-textbook on their home computer.
