Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Greenbush District Curriculum
The state prohibits common school districts from providing secondary education to its residents; therefore, the NGCSD’s curriculum does not include this type of instruction. Additionally, Wynantskill only serves students from kindergarten to eighth grade. Regardless of their offerings, their curricula meet all requirements of the New York State Education Department (NYSED). Averill Park and Troy City School also meet the NYSED standards, as well as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The CCSS is a federal mandate, which attempts to unify and improve state guidelines. Currently, the Common Core has changed the English language arts and mathematics curricula.
The secondary curricula offered through the various high school choices meet the NYSED and CCSS requirements. Students attending any high school available to North Greenbush residents have access to rigorous core academic training and a variety of elective options. All programs are designed to prepare students for college and/or career after high school.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Before- and After-School Programs
Many parents work outside the home and are unavailable to see their children off to school or greet them when they come home. Economic needs often dictate these schedules, and parents can be stressed about finding reliable, safe, and affordable daycare. Fortunately, many school districts offer before- and after-school programs for students. These programs provide tutoring services, quiet places for study and homework, and resources for students. Students have access to books, computers, and many other supplies at school. In addition to providing a safe place for students, before- and after-school programs may also serve students a necessary meal or two. Children are more likely to stay out of trouble at school, in the attention of caring adults. These programs can encourage physical fitness and spending time outdoors. School districts and communities should do all they can to help fund, provide support, and implement before- and after-school programs for their youth.
