Superintendent's Message
Fall 2017
Welcome to the 2017-18 school year at Schenevus Central School. 
 
The building project is nearing completion with an expected end date of October 2017. Students will return to school to find an improved library and auditorium, new windows, lights, floors, bathrooms, and lockers, as well as many infrastructure upgrades. Our hope is that the upgraded instructional spaces will match the creativity and ingenuity of our staff and students. For updates visit the building project website
 
We are continuing to work with the Marzano comprehensive framework for instruction and corresponding teacher evaluation model which is based on decades of research, practice, and common sense. Our teachers emphasize research-based instructional strategies in their classrooms to enhance the creative teaching and individual student attention Schenevus has always been known for. This year, we will focus on working with standards, targets, and scales within the framework.
 
Last year we implemented our 1:1 technology initiative, funded through the New York State Smart Bond initiative, which provided a Chromebook or iPad for every student PK-12, several “smart” classrooms, and a Mac lab for advanced digital media. Our Smart Schools Investment Plan for 2017 expands our digital repetoir to include a Google virtual reality kit, a camera drone, sound systems for each of the music rooms, and new interactive whiteboards. Supporting staff with professional development to effectively work with instructional technology will continue to be a priority in 2017-18.

You will see in the 2017-18 District Program Guide that our students will have more robust opportunities for enrichment in and out of the classroom. We will also be working to improve how we collect and respond to achievement data to support students who struggle academically. Our aim continues to be to provide an individualized education as unique as each student.
 
We all share responsibility in educating our children; please call, email, or stop in if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Sincerely,

Thomas G. Jennings, Superintendent
