The richness of the Lackawanna City School District’s diverse community is reflected in our curriculum and our efforts to deliver culturally responsive instruction. The Lackawanna curriculum is based upon the New York State Department of Education standards and frameworks, which emphasize the core knowledge and skills required for students’ success in the 21st century. We are in the process of aligning our curriculum maps to the new Common Core Learning Standards. Our high expectations for students are measured by a variety of assessments and performance evaluations that are aligned with the standards. Instructional decisions are based on data to ensure excellence and equity of opportunity.
Our school system continues to grow through the collaborative efforts of our teachers, students, parents, administrators, and the Lackawanna community. The children and young adults in the Lackawanna City School District are our most valuable resource. We are dedicated to providing our students with the tools to meet the challenges of our rapidly changing world.
