Green Island's Latest NYS Report Card
The NYS Education Department releases School
Report Cards on every public school and district in the state. Based on
some key assessments taken by students in New York public schools, the
report cards provide achievement data on districts and schools, as
compared to their past years' performances and to other similar schools.
Report cards are released each spring for the previous school year. Green Island's most current NYS Report Card, released in Spring 2012, covers the 2010-2011 school year.

Green Island working to improve test scores
On March 17, 2009, the
New York State Education Department published their annual list of
schools that did not meet the state’s testing standards under the
No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.
Green Island was designated on that list as a School in Need of Improvement (SINI), along with 53 other districts in the state, because Heatly students did not meet state standards on the English and mathematics Regents exams in 2007 or 2008.
Because district leaders already knew scores were down, Superintendent John McKinney, along with the District Leadership Team, has been working on an improvement plan for the past two years. [LEARN MORE]
