  • 2016-17 Updates

    Posted by Jennifer Mahar on 7/28/2016
    We are pleased to announce that the Olean City School District is no longer designated as a Focus District for the 2016-17 school year. With the most recent accountability status updates, the Olean Intermediate-Middle School has transitioned from a Focus School to a Local Assistance Plan designation. East View Elementary will continue to have the Local Assistance Plan designation for the upcoming year.
     
    We would like to thank the Building Level Teams from each building, the CDEP/Shared Decision Making Team, and the DCIP-SCEP Planning Committee for their participation in the process of developing these plans.
     
    The 2016-17 Local Assistance Plans for each building can be found on the Improvement Plan page.

  • Evidence Collection

    Posted by Jennifer Mahar on 1/9/2013 12:30:00 PM
    Teachers and administrators have begun to learn about the Diagnostic Tool rubrics connected with the Focus District Review process. These rubrics, which can be viewed here, will be used in a self-assessment of the Olean Intermediate-Middle School and the Olean City School District as part of the Focus School and Focus District review process.
     
    During sessions with teachers and administrators, small groups have been discussing the rubric language and identifying school and district practices, resources, supports, and special programs to complete the rubric review. This work will continue as the self-assessments are prepared and documentation gathered for the review process.
