Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
In September 2017, New York State submitted its plan for the approximately $1.6 billion New York receives annually under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

The presentation below gives detailed information about the federal law that outlines how states can use federal money to support public schools.

This hand-out created by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) to help parents and caregivers better understand ESSA.


New York State Report Card
The NYS Education Department releases School Report Cards on every public school and district in the state. Based on some key assessments taken by students in New York public schools, the report cards provide achievement data on districts and schools, as compared to their past years’ performances and to other similar schools.

 

Testing and Assessments
Ichabod Crane’s students take a number of exams every year — NYS Exams, Regents Exams, Local Exams and AP Exams.

The New York State Education Department mandates that all public school districts give state tests in English language arts, math and science to all students in grades 3-8. High School Regents Exams are held in January, June and August.
