Curriculum & Instruction

Our Goal

The Public Schools of the Tarrytowns Office of Curriculum & Instruction believes that curriculum is a journey, not a written plan. There are multiple pathways to deliver curriculum which then influences learning for our diverse student population. The New York State Learning Standards govern the baseline learning, which is complemented by national standards and individualized learning outcomes. 

Our collaborative staff engages in professional development opportunities & initiatives that are primarily focused on Equity Through Access, are driven by data analysis, align learning across the Pre-k through 12th grade continuum and maintain a focus on the social-emotional/academic needs of all learners.
