New City District and Curriculum
As a hamlet in the Town of Clarkstown, the majority of New City residents will attend the Clarkstown Central School District (CCSD), with a small portion attending East Ramapo Central School District (ERCSD). The CCSD and ERCSD provide students with instruction that is developmentally appropriate and meets the New York State Education Department’s (NYSED) requirements. As a state that has adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the NYSED has created its own Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) to which all school districts adhere. These standards highlight literacy in all subject areas, numbers competencies, and preparation for post-secondary education and career.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New City District Curriculum
The primary curriculum at each district gives children foundational instruction in the core academic subjects to prepare them for subsequent learning. Special courses, such as music, art, and physical education, provide them with an opportunity to explore other interests and talents. Students also have access to special education, academic intervention services (AIS), and assistance with speech and reading.
Secondary curricular activities are designed to meet the specific needs of adolescence, nurturing their academic growth through rigorous coursework, as well as their social and emotional growth through a variety of exploratory options and extracurricular activities. Students at the middle schools will take courses in art, English language arts, home and careers/family and consumer science, mathematics, music, physical education, science, social studies, technology, and world languages/English as a second language. Additional options for high school students are business education, Advanced Placement (AP) courses, and college credit programs.

Chalk Talk: How to Identify Developmental Delays
Every child learns differently and has innate intelligences that vary. All children will struggle in school, but some difficulties should be addressed as early as possible. Ideally, kindergarten is an optimal time to detect developmental delays, because they may turn into disabilities that affect a child’s entire academic career. Although it is not always possible to discover such delays, there are some milestones that parents should make sure their children reach during this monumental first year. In English language arts, instruction will emphasize skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Kindergarteners should be able to recognize the letters in his or her name. They should have recognizable handwriting (even if it is a bit sloppy). They should be able to describe a series of events, and others should be able to understand their speech. Mathematics competencies include counting to ten, recognizing the digits 1-10, and identify basic shapes. Of course, academic development is not the only indicator of a developmental delay. Students who exhibit social and emotional delays should also receive help.
