The Medina Central School District offers a comprehensive educational prgram to all students, both academically and through enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities. The Office of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment supports the continuous effort to improve student learning through curriculum and professional development provided to administrators, teachers, and staff.
The school community has met the challenge of the new Common Core State Learning Standards and is recognized as a district in "Good Standing" with all school buildings meeting expectations for student growth. Student progress will continue to be monitored and the expectation of meeting students' individual needs will remain at the forefront of our efforts. Working collaboratively with all stakeholders, the Medina Central School District will persevere in our mission to "Educate to inspire all to reach beyond the expected and positively impact their communities."
Department Chairs support the work of instructional improvement through regular review of standards, teaching methodologies, and assessments that target expected learning outcomes. In addition to monitoring the needs of the department to which they are appointed, Department Chairs also provide guidance to new teachers to the District through our mentoring program.
