Heatly School back in good standing with state

Child smiles at camera

The school had been on the state’s Building in need of “Comprehensive Support and Improvement” list but now removed following improved standardized test scores

On February 29, 2024, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) removed Heatly School’s Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) designation and promoted us to the Local Support and Improvement (LSI) model. The LSI model, formerly known as a school in Good Standing, indicates that all students are meeting expectations for performance. NYSED releases accountability designations for all public school districts as required under the state’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). 

This year, NYSED recognized the continuous improvement efforts of Heatly School. We have made considerable academic progress and growth, shown by our testing scores increasing. We are incredibly proud of the work our students, families, staff, and administrators have put in to accomplish this designation. While we still have work to do, this milestone marks our upward momentum to go beyond state standards. 

Being in a unique situation as a one school district, the accountability formula bases target status on a bottom percentage of schools and districts within the state. Despite earning the improved status as a school, because there are 4 times as many schools as districts, the Green Island UFSD is still identified as a Targeted District.
