Citizens of the Town of Lansing will attend Lansing Central School District (LCSD), with some area residents’ attending Ithaca City School District (ICSD). Both the LCSD and ICSD adhere to the standards and guidelines created by the New York State Education Department (NYSED). The NYSED recently adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), transforming its state standards into the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) for districts to follow. At present, the CCLS highlight unified and enhanced benchmarks for English language arts and mathematics.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lansing District Curriculum
The primary curriculum at each district begins with foundational instruction in general academic subjects. Students take part in small- and large-group instruction, as well as attending lessons in non-core subjects, such as art, music, library, character education, and physical education. Students have opportunities to interact through unstructured play via recess, lunch, and snack time. The districts also offer students physical and speech therapies, academic intervention, special education, and other services when needed.
Students at the middle schools receive instruction in core academic subjects, as well as technology, media, music, foreign languages, physical education, health, and art. Support programs are also available, such as academic intervention, special education, and English as a second language. High school programs are similar to middle school offerings, except their courses are more specialized to prepare students for college and/or career.

Chalk Talk: How to Prepare Teens for Career Choices
From a young age, children begin to think about what they want to be when they “grow up”. It is ingrained in us all to determine our career calling, attend training, and join the workforce. However, is this task as easy as it sounds? No, it is not. Choosing a career path can be stressful and unclear, especially for adolescents about to graduate from high school. Without a clear plan, students may waste time (and money) in high school and college courses, which can defeat their abilities to find their true callings. Some schools offer career assessments, such as personality and interests surveys, but many times, this step is not enough. Parents and teachers should help guide teenagers to determine their paths, even if it takes a few years to narrow down. Adults should encourage teens to identify their interests and passions, but in practical ways.
