Hastings District and Curriculum
The Central Square Central School District adheres to the guidelines administered through the New York State Education Department (NYSED). The district’s curriculum aligns with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), which provide a developmentally appropriate education to students, ultimately preparing them for college and career. The main objectives of the CCSS and district are to teach students skills in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and mathematics. Starting in kindergarten, students receive instruction in foundational, core subjects, which prepare them for subsequent learning and mastery. As they advance towards high school, the opportunities to specialize their education allow them to determine their path of study according to their goals.
We currently cover the following Hastings-area school district: Central Square Central School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hastings District Curriculum
General academic subjects include English language arts, science, social studies, mathematics, reading, writing, art, music, and physical education. At the high school, students take courses that are more rigorous and provide them with the exploratory outlets to fulfill post-secondary plans. Students may take business courses, in addition to college level and Advanced Placement (AP) coursework. To prepare students for the global economy, the languages curriculum helps students develop presentational skills as well, such as providing written and verbal information to a group in the language under study.
Two subjects that receive considerable attention are the arts and technology, and the increasing ways that they can be integrated has benefited students by increasing the topics for study. Creating 2-D and 3-D art pieces are part of the arts curriculum, as are the digital arts. Students work on a variety of projects in order to get a basic understanding of the types of tools at their disposal to creative art that is meaningful to them. Students likewise practice critiquing their art, as well as receiving constructive feedback from others.

Chalk Talk: How to Keep Your Brain Safe
Everyone knows that drug and alcohol abuse can be dangerous to young brains, but do teachers, parents, and coaches do enough to teach children about the dangers of concussions? Every year, health workers treat over 173,000 sports- and play-related incidents that may lead to traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in children (from birth to age 19). Children are more susceptible to significant symptoms from concussions, and their recovery time is typically more than college-aged students or adults. Even the smallest head injury can grow dangerous in children, mostly because their brains are still developing, and they may not be able to verbalize their symptoms effectively. Parents, coaches, and teachers have a responsibility to identify warning signs in children and act accordingly. Concussive symptoms are the same in adults as they are in children: dizziness, difficulty concentrating, headaches, blurred vision, nausea, short-term memory issues, sleeping problems, and more. It is especially concerning that young brains are more susceptible to depression and other mood issues following a concussion. Coaches and parents should remove their children from all activities immediately and not allow them to play until properly evaluated by a doctor.
