The Learned Curriculum

The learned curriculum is reflected in the match between the written and taught curricula as measured in student performance.  We utilize a variety of stategies and instruments to assess student learning including, but not limited to, classroom observation, classwork, homework, authentic performance tasks, quizzes, tests, and standardized assessment.  Each of these provides
a window into individual and cohort learning.

Teaching is the Core Grant

Rockland BOCES received a $200,000 Teaching is the Core grant designed to promote increased assessment literacy
and best practice assessment strategies, aligned to standards, among educators in the Rockland BOCES consortium (Clarkstown, East Ramapo, North Rockland, Nyack, Pearl River, and BOCES itself).  District and BOCES’ teams will spend the year learning from assessment and content specialists in order to develop a system of embedded professional development to build the capacity of the district teams to lead similar work beyond grant funding (sustainability). There will also be a  Regional Parent & Community Conference in May, essentially a forum for parents, community members, board members and non-instructional staff aimed at deepening their assessment literacy.  Pearl River School District has a representative team of K-2 teachers and an administrator participating on a regular basis in this work.
