Mr. Kevin K. Kendall
Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum,
Instruction, Assessment and Technology
The 2018-2019 school year is upon us and teachers and administrators have been very busy preparing for the opening of our district’s schools. This webpage has been developed to keep the Ogdensburg community informed about important matters pertaining to Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment and Technology in the OCSD.
The Ogdensburg City School District is committed to the continuous improvement of student achievement through the development and implementation of a rigorous academic program. As you may already know, our teachers began implementing the Writing/Reading Workshop Model in all classrooms, K-6. This year, our teachers in grades UPK, Junior K and 7/8 will begin this work. We are using the curriculum, Units of Study for Writing, which was developed by the Reading and Writing Project at Columbia University. We began this initiative because of the strong body of research that shows when students have time to read and write each day it leads to greater fluency and proficiency. In grades 9-12, we will begin year three of distance learning opportunities for our students, as well as the introduction of two new courses, Digital Art and Model UN/Mock Trial, which provides students opportunity to participate in Model UN Conferences with neighboring schools. The Faculty and Staff continue to be committed to molding the students of the Ogdensburg City School District into Effective Communicators, Productive Workers and Complex Thinkers.
The faculty and staff of the Ogdensburg City School District are committed to providing students access to a rigorous curriculum that will prepare them to meet the demands of the 21st century workforce. It is our District’s mission to work in partnership with students, staff, parents and community members to strive toward achieving academic excellence that enables our students to become college and career ready.
