Academics

The Tri-Valley Central School District is dedicated to fostering an educational program that challenges our students and prepares them for college and careers.

Parent Portal

The Tri-Valley Parent Portal (SchoolTool) enables parents to monitor their children’s progress in school. Parents can access secure online information about their child’s assignments, grades and more.

Grades, Promotion and Placement

The Tri-Valley Central School District has established policies on the grading, promotion and placement of students.

New York State Standards

The New York State Education Department is responsible for setting student learning expectations (standards) for what all students should know and be able to do as a result of skilled instruction. Each local school district develops curricula based on these established New York State Standards.

Title 1

Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), provides financial assistance to local educational agencies for children from low-income families to help ensure that all students meet challenging state academic standards. The purpose is to provide all students significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps among groups of students.

Funds are allocated through four statutory formulas that are based primarily on census poverty estimates and the cost of education in each state.

Academic Intervention Services (AIS)

Academic intervention services are services designed to help students achieve the learning standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics in grades K-12 and social studies and science in grades 4-12. These services include two components:

  • Additional instruction that supplements the general curriculum (regular classroom instruction), and/or
  • Student support services needed to address barriers to improved academic performance.

The intensity of such services may vary, but must be designed to respond to student needs as indicated through assessments results.
