Academics

Central Valley School District strives to offer students programs and opportunities to enable them to graduate college and career ready.

Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR)

Each year, New York state schools must evaluate the performance of their principals and teachers using a process called the Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR). Learn more about APPR.

Common Core Learning Standards

Common Core Standards have been developed to provide a clear outline of what a student should learn to graduate college and career ready. Learn more about Common Core.

New York State School Report Card (Accountability Report)

The New York State Report Card is an important part of the Board of Regents’ effort to raise learning standards for all students. It provides information to the public on school/district enrollment and staff, student performance, and other measures of school and district performance. Knowledge gained from the report card on a school’s or district’s strengths and weaknesses can be used to improve instruction and services to students.

Assessments—State and Local

The New York State Education Department requires all public school districts to administer state tests in English language arts, math and science to all students in grades 3-8. High school students in New York State are required to pass five Regents exams in order to graduate – in English, math, U.S. history & government, global history and one science subject area.

In addition, school districts administer other assessments to measure student progress, both from year-to-year and throughout the year.

New York requires schools to report the exams they give. Those exams are listed below. See the New York State Education Department’s formal review of Central Valley CSD testing in the district’s most recent Testing Transparency Report (PDF).
