enVisionmath's Robust Resources Support Learning 

Last year, the district set up a comprehensive study of various math programs with the intention of adopting one for implementation across all three elementary schools and the sixth grade.

It is now three-quarters into its first year. Let's see how one teacher is using it.

Making a World of Difference

A club at John Jay High School is all about creating a community of acceptance and understanding.  It's called A World of Difference (AWOD) and it was started a number of years ago through a relationship with the Anti-Defamation League.

Thanks to the work of AWOD, one of the district's signature programs at the elementary level--Differences Day--came to John Jay High School on April 5 and 6.
