Middle States Accreditation Feedback

Two years ago we asked all school stakeholders (parents, students, teachers, staff, community members, etc.) to take a survey to self-assess Comsewogue's strengths and needs.  We received wonderful feedback.  This information was used to apply for Middle States Accreditation, an honor given to outstanding schools which was granted, without hesitation or recommendation, in Spring 2017.   Each year we need to administer an updated survey and see if we are improving on the areas noted in the original survey.  We had four areas in which we wanted to improve: to increase overall transparency by sharing information in a variety of formats; to improve communication with regards to curriculum and assessment tools;  to increase proficiency for English Language Learners; and increase the percentage of students receiving Advanced Regents Diplomas.  This survey will gather data on the first two objectives.  We will use data from student records for the remaining objectives.  We will use the results of this survey (which will be posted on the website) to continue to grow and improve.  Please take this survey to continue to strengthen Comsewogue.
