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.
The mission statement below guides these efforts:
The mission of the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns is to empower students to make informed choices and assume responsibility for their own actions as they become self-directed, lifelong learners who are committed and able contributors to a sustainable local and global society. In partnership with our diverse community, we promote continuous growth through active engagement in a personalized learning environment characterized by high expectations and academic rigor in a climate of collaboration and mutual respect.
