Grant Awarded

Our district (Town of Webb) is part of the JLHHO BOCES Consortium that has been awarded $400,000 through the “Teaching is the Core" grant.  The purpose of this grant is to support efforts to eliminate and/or improve locally adopted tests that do not contribute to teaching and learning. We’re told the funds will help districts identify and improve assessments already in use that can lead to school and education effectiveness. In addition the grant will provide training and support in identifying assessment best practices, and determining high quality assessments that are being used by the district.
