Next Generation Learning Standards
The New York State Board of Regents adopted the newly revised English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Standards on September 11, 2017. The new standards have been the result of over two years of collaborative work to ensure New York State has the best learning standards for our students. Over 130 educators and parents worked together to make recommendations and revise the standards, resulting in a new set of revised English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Standards.
The Next Generation Learning Standards serve as a consistent set of expectations for what students should learn and be able to do, so that we can ensure every student is on track for college and career readiness. The Next Generation Learning Standards are benchmarked, ensuring students are prepared to enter college and compete with their peers around the world in the increasingly competitive global economy. The adoption of these standards underscores Trinity Lutheran’s commitment to maintaining high academic standards for our students. Trinity Lutheran School incorporates and exceeds the Next Generation Standards in our curriculum, but we do not administer the New York State Next Generation tests. Each grade’s curriculum includes nationally recognized benchmarks throughout the school year to evaluate and ensure our student’s progress. The adoption of these standards underscores Trinity Lutheran’s commitment to maintaining high academic standards for our students.
The Learning Center: An essential service to students who are experiencing academic difficulties in the classroom. It provides a multi-sensory learning time with limited distractions. Referred by the classroom teacher, children come individually or in small groups for lessons that concentrate on a particular area of the child’s classroom curriculum. Alternate learning techniques and extra practice prior to testing are provided to allow each child to perform to their highest potential.
