Commack Schools Recognized for High Academic Achievement
Recognition SchoolsFour of our Commack schools were named 2019-20 Recognition Schools by the NYS Education Department for “their high academic achievement and strong progress” during the 2018-19 school year. This recognition is part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the main federal law for K-12 public education, which requires that states hold public schools accountable for how students achieve.

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) established a new set of indicators to measure school performance, scoring all students and student subgroups on factors that include student academic achievement, student growth and school progress, progress of English language learners, chronic absenteeism, and for high schools, graduation rates and preparing students for college, career and civic engagement.

“We are #CommackProud of the continuing deep commitment that our teachers, administrators, and staff display every day to meet the varied needs of every student,” said Commack Superintendent Dr. Donald James. “With the additional support of our parents and community, our schools will continue to thrive and grow in the future.” 

The full 2019-20 Recognition Schools list is available on the State Education Department (SED) website. Further details on the Recognition School Identification Methodology can be found on the Department’s ESSA Accountability Designations website.
