The Elmira City School District is a dynamic and innovative organization dedicated to developing learners of character who value their educational experience and can compete globally and contribute locally by collaborating with students, families, and community partners to provide meaningful opportunities in a safe and engaging environment for all.
In the Elmira City School District, all schools have been given the designation of a Focus School by the New York State Education Department for the 2017-2018 school year. Broadway Academy, Ernie Davis Academy and Elmira High School have been re-identified as Focus schools as well as the District being re-identified as a Focus District. Being that all buildings have been identified as Focus Schools there is no option of school choice.
This designation is the result of subgroups of students not making performance targets set by the New York State Education Department in the areas of ELA and math. Some of these subgroups are economically disadvantaged students, students with disabilities, students of mixed-race and African American students. This designation is also the result of the district four (4) year graduation rate not meeting state targets.
We are confident the strategies and programs outlined in the schools’ comprehensive education plans (SCEP) and the district comprehensive improvement plan (DCIP) will result in successful experiences for your child. We will continue to serve your child and use all personnel, materials and resources to support continued growth toward proficiency on the Common Core Learning Standards. Parents and families are an integral part of student success. We will continue to build partnerships with all stakeholders to better meet the needs of our diverse learners.
