Welcome to the
virtual home of the Office of Curriculum, Instruction and
Technology for the South Country Central School District. Our
office is considered the “heart and soul” of the school
district as our work with faculty and administration strives to
provide students the most rigorous and enriching educational
The District is committed to
implementing a comprehensive process of curriculum review and
assessment to foster continuous improvement of student
performance, as measured by the highest local, regional, national
and international standards of excellence. To accomplish this
task, we must continuously explore and develop our curriculum to
ensure its effectiveness and alignment with the Common Core
Standards. Student performance toward these standards is
measured by classroom assessments, New York State assessments
in grades 3rd through 8th, as well as by Regents and RCT
examinations. Notably, our district also offers a significant
number of AP courses for students to take, preparing them for
successful entry into their college-bound years.
We celebrate the action research,
collaboration and implementation of the
teaching and learning practices designed to meet the diverse
learning needs of our student body. Through a dynamic curriculum
renewal process paired with the use of state-of-art
technologies, we strive to prepare our students to be lifelong
learners in a technologically-advanced world.
In addition to being responsible
for the comprehensive Pre-K through 12th grade instructional
program, the Office also coordinates professional development
that provides continuous education and instructional support to
the District's professional staff, which includes the following:
Articulation of the elementary, middle, and high school
Coordination of all program improvement projects.
Administration and analysis of national, state, and district
Management of state and federal grants.
Coordination of professional development activities including
conference attendance and consultants.
We have a terrific school
district, and I hope you get a taste of our traditions by
exploring our district site, as well as by taking a peek at our
schools' pages. However, spending time with our students and
staff is by far the best way to personally experience our school
district. I invite you to have a one-on-one conversation with a
member of our educational team to develop a deeper understanding
of our educational community.
It is an honor and privilege to be able to serve our South
Country students and community. Thank you for your ongoing
support of our schools.
