Wawarsing District and Curriculum
The Town of Wawarsing encompasses two school districts — the Rondout Valley Central School District (RVCSD) and the Ellenville Central School District (ECSD). The RVCSD consists of two elementary schools (K-3), one intermediate school (4-6), one junior high school (7-8), and one high school (9-12). The ECSD has one elementary school (4K-5), one middle school (6-8), and one high school (9-12). Both the Rondout Valley and Ellenville Central School Districts have implemented the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) into their curricula.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wawarsing District Curriculum
Rondout Valley teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders have collaborated to create the district’s curricular goals. The curriculum emphasizes research-based instructional methods and data-driven modifications for best practices. Each core subject and grade-level cohort have created “cabinets” for their instructional development, maintaining the integrity of the CCSS and state goals. These standards specifically address cohesiveness in English language arts and mathematics; however, plans exist for future expansion of the federal and state initiatives. The districts also follow directives made by the New York State Education Department (NYSED).
Objectives for student learning in both districts include rigorous study of core academic subjects and exploratory study in various areas of interest. Each grade-level mastery prepares students for future grade-level coursework, and the secondary programs align with preparing students for college and/or career expectations.

Chalk Talk: How to Plan for Financing College
The cost of college tuition has soared beyond the inflation of other goods and services. Paying for college with a part-time job is no longer an option, and too often, students have to take out loans to pay for tuition, supplies, and boarding. Many students today are swallowed by their debt, causing stress and economic strain. The expenses of college should not be a reason to neglect dreams of a higher education; however, careful planning may make obtaining an education more manageable. To save money, students can attend community colleges for many of their general course requirements. These courses are taught by qualified staff at the fraction of what a university would charge and typically transfer for full credit. Students can also make sure to attend in-state schools, as residents pay lower tuition fees. If a student wants to attend a school out-of-state, he or she can obtain residency within that state to save money.
