I would like to remind you that on Wednesday and Thursday, April 11, 2018 - April 12, 2018, all 3rd, 4th and 5th-grade students will be taking the NYS ELA Exam. This test will measure your child's success in Reading.
My office, District 3 middle school principals, the CEC and parents have been engaged in an active conversation about increasing diversity across our middle schools throughout this school year. In conjunction with a citywide move to eliminate revealed ranking in the middle school application process, our district is looking at ways to increase access for all families.
#ENOUGH National School Walkout (Letter From, Carmen Fariña, Schools Chancellor)
March 08, 2018
Elementary school students who wish to participate in the walkout need to be signed out by their parents or guardians. For students of all ages with nurses or paraprofessionals required for safety, parents or qualified staff members must be willing to accompany students who wish to participate in the walkout. If a parent or qualified staff member is not willing to walk out and accompany the student, the student must remain inside the school.
