   Message from the Interim Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction: 

Dear Central Islip Community,

We have returned to full time, in-person instruction, and are looking ahead to an exciting school year. We, in the Central Islip School District, are dedicated to providing a quality education that is based on a cutting-edge curriculum. Having students succeed academically is Central Islip School District's number one priority, because a solid education is key to their success in life.

As a result, a number of academic initiatives, designed to enhance student academic performance, have been implemented at age-appropriate grade levels. Countdown is a digital program used to strengthen foundational skills, phonemic awareness and fine-motor dexterity. Systems 44, Read180, Success-Maker and Leveled Literacy Intervention are initiatives that focus on areas where students demonstrate academic weaknesses, while collecting crucial data that identify strengths and patterns.

Into Reading and Envision Math are core subjects that challenge the advanced scholars with rigorous concepts designed to expand their comprehension, creativity and engagement in the academic process. After-School-Programs are designed to accelerate student achievement through math games, STEAM sessions, reading differentiation and homework support. The school leaders are taking every step possible to support students’ social emotional learning, their learning recovery and academic achievement. 

Research illustrates that students whose parents are involved, attend school regularly, earn higher grades, graduate and advance to post-secondary education institutions. To that end, I encourage all our families to become as involved as you can with your children's education so that your children - our students - will achieve success in the classroom and in accomplishing their goals after graduation.

I wish our students and families a successful and exciting school year. If you have curriculum-based questions, I welcome you to contact me at lholmes@centralislip.k12.ny.us

Sincerely,

Leila Holmes

Interim Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction
