Students pilot Chromebooks students stand with blue recycling bins Career Day Long scarf

Hudson CSD has invested in tablets and Chromebooks for all of our students, in grades K–12, to use as learning tools (as part of the 2016-17 approved budget).

Mrs. Howard's science class started a recycling initiative at Hudson Junior High School.

Hudson Junior High School held Career Day! Community members came to speak to students about their jobs, and gave them advice on breaking into the field.

Mrs. Ostrander's Home and Careers classes crocheted and knitted pieces for a very long scarf to represent diversity and warm feelings in the district.

Coming soon to a classroom near you!

This year, some HCSD teachers are piloting a communication platform called LivingTree in order to share important information with the parents of their students. Parents will be able to receive messages, photos, event notifications and more directly from their child's teacher. LivingTree even has instant translation for more than 40 languages!

So if you see an email in your inbox from LivingTree it is not junk, it is from your child's teacher!

Changes to 2016 New York State Assessments

The New York State Department of Education has recently issued changes to the Grades 3-8 English/Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics tests, which will be in effect for the 2016 tests. The changes include fewer test questions, untimed testing and greater teacher involvement in creating and reviewing tests.

Here is a letter sent home to parents on March 8, 2016 about the NYS assessments in math and ELA that will take place in April. The letter explains how the district uses the test results to improve education for students and the changes to help address concerns of parents and educators.

If you have any questions about the assessments, please do not hesitate to contact your child's principal.
