Posted May 15, 2009

After spending the 8yrs with my 3 children all started from k and my daughter now in 7th 3 areas need to be addressed. 1- Reading comp. along with AIS EAL children need much more attention. No communication between teacher / teacher and parents unless the parent addresses it. Then an excuse always surfaces. 2- School staff needs to realize that the pressures they have should not be reccognized by the children. A kind welcomming greating every day keeps the children enthused. It also shows them how to welcome others. 3- The school should remember that many children in this town have nothing to do other than school. After school, saturday or summer more fitness programs should be intoduced. Overall I am pleased with many of the teachers and the actions taken and the attention given by the elementary principle Dian Dumis. The computer skills programs from grades 5 and up are the best.

3 of my 6 children graduated here. After my 3rd did and was told he was not college material I knew we had to leave as I had more left to finish high school. Granville is poorly run and supervised. Good teachers are few and far between, mostly at elementary level. Guidance offers minimal involvement and assistance.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
