Poughkeepsie District and Curriculum
The Poughkeepsie City School District is in the process of implementing the Common Core Curriculum Framework that has been adopted by the New York State Board of Regents as the state approved curriculum. All school districts are required to have the curriculum in place in the 2013 school year. As the Poughkeepsie City School District implements the standards, student achievement for Language Arts will be aligned with the new standards for English and Literacy. Students will be expected to develop and demonstrate the ability to analyze, make inferences, and extrapolate information in all subjects.
We currently cover the following Poughkeepsie-area school district: Poughkeepsie City School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Poughkeepsie District Curriculum
In the elementary grades, Language Arts is focused on teaching students to read, write, listen, and speak while demonstrating a control of the English language. Students start with phonics and other reading systems to begin the journey to literacy. Children in the younger grades are expected to learn decoding and critical thinking skills which allow them to evaluate their reading material as well as ask and answer questions about what they have read.
The Math curriculum is progressive and introduces students to computational skills, measurement, algebra, probability and statistics. The skill building process is supported by relevant learning experiences. At the high school level students continue their studies in algebra and geometry and have the opportunity to expand their Math skills with advanced coursework. The technology curriculum offers students the chance to learn about topics as advanced as coding and programming and also is integrated into other subjects such as teaching art students how to use graphics programs or requiring students to use technology aides in presentations.

- New Playground Equipment - Third grade students at Krieger School, on their own initiative have started a fundraising event to install a swing set on the school playground. The goal is to raise $3,500 to purchase the swing set. Several of the students started the project as second graders and went to the principal of their school, Margaret Pineiro with the idea. So far the students have raised $500 so it looks like it might take another year to get the swing set but the students are determined.
- Programs with United Way - The United Way of Dutchess County was helped again by the Poughkeepsie City School District employees who donated more than $4,000 in this year’s fundraising Annual employee campaign. The funding is used in a variety of area community programs in Poughkeepsie.
