Welcome from Assistant Superintendent Louise Seitsinger

Welcome to our Curriculum, Assessment, and Instruction district web page.  It is an honor and pleasure to support our district in improving teaching and learning.  We are in a continuous cycle of building a comprehensive and cohesive system of curriculum that includes input from our entire school community.  Our goal is for all students to have access to a guaranteed and viable curriculum.  All administrators, teachers, and students should be clear regarding the grade level and content expectations.  Through this web page we will share curriculum documents, current district goals, and other resources.

Student Attendance:  Per RI Department of Education, student attendance will take place each day.  Students are expected to attend online or distance learning during this extended period of time from physical school (8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Monday – Friday).  This will happen in the following way: 

  • Teachers will determine student attendance daily by one of the following, as determined by the individual teacher:

  •  Using Dojo, Padlet, Google Classroom, Virtual meetings, Student email, etc. 
  • Attendance will be recorded into Skyward Student Portal.
  • School secretaries, administrators, support staff may call students who have not logged in each day
  • After several (2) consecutive days of not being “present”, support staff and/or principal will reach out to families
  • In the event of all of the above attempts being unsuccessful, students will be referred to the truancy officer for support
