Summer Learning Programs at Poughkeepsie High School and Poughkeepsie Middle School will be held as scheduled on Monday June 28th and 29th as power has been restored to PHS and PMS. Both buildings have electrical power, phone and internet service.
How can teachers engage middle and high school ELLs, particularly long-term ELLs and students at different proficiency and literacy levels, in the rigorous work of the Common Core? Teachers in Poughkeepsie, New York tackled that question in a multimedia project focused on implementing the standards with secondary students.

PCSD deeply appreciates the support of the Honorable Judge Frank Mora and the Honorable Judge Katherine Moloney to implement a pilot program this summer targeting middle school students for participation in criminal-justice-related “field experiences.” This Criminal justice literacy and learning experience will provide students with exposure to the criminal justice system in an educational environment to enable students to make good choices and remain on an academically and socially successful path.
