Student Assessments under review at Southern Cayuga CSD
 
A state grant focused on improving the quality of educational assessments has been awarded to the Cayuga-Onondaga BOCES, on behalf of our nine component school districts, which includes the Southern Cayuga Central School District. 
 
The “Teaching is the Core” (TiTC) assessment grant ($280,110) is possible through New York State’s Race to the Top allocation and will provide research-based professional development and direct on-site support to all nine of the component districts in the BOCES.  This one-year project has the potential to significantly impact the way we think about assessments and data analysis in our region. 
 
This project seeks to meet two primary outcomes:  ensuring districts have high-quality assessments and ensuring that districts have the capacity to use the assessments to support teaching and learning.  As a participating member in this exciting work, each district will complete an assessment audit, develop an action plan to improve their existing assessment practices and implement the action plan.  Each district will be supported by a Data Driven Instruction Coordinator who will be exclusively assigned to support districts in implementing the work outlined in this project.  We are thrilled that the Teaching is the Core grant is providing resources for the BOCES to partner with teachers and administrators in our district.
