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). Our 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. Further information will be made available in the upcoming months.
