Curriculum, Instruction & Research

Dear Oceanside Families and Community Members,

After an extremely challenging year and a half, please know that the exceptional team of educators at the Oceanside School District is dedicated to preserving what we all hold dearest: the health and well-being of our students, their families, and our school community as a whole, and the excellent education that our community is known for.

This school year, all of us need a little extra TLC. With mutual empathy, respect, trust that we are all doing our very best, patience with ourselves and one another, and a big helping of self-care,  we will proceed with our charge to prepare our students for bright futures.

I hope that you will take a moment to contemplate the joys of learning ahead: your children will participate in book talks,  they’ll design video games, websites, and applications through coding, makerspace and computer science, and will engage in business simulations through our High School Virtual Enterprise course...just to highlight a few aspects of an Oceanside education that your children can anticipate.

Fine and Performing Arts, Physical Education and Athletics, and Social Emotional Literacy will continue to be important pillars supporting academic learning and enriching students culturally, intellectually and emotionally. You can count on a wide and varied educational program for your children in these areas. Each year, we establish exciting goals and objectives for our curriculum and instruction. We continue to set, work toward, and exceed the goals that we create each year to make an already strong education even better.

Please take a look at the 2021-22 Goals and Objectives to learn more. I look forward to another year of collaborating with our leaders, teachers, and our families to ensure our students thrive and are ready to soar to their highest potential.

Warmest regards,
Diane Provvido
Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction & Research

NYS Seal of Biliteracy

The New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB)  represents the Oceanside School District's participation in the NYSSB program which recognizes high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in English and one or more world languages.  The Silver Badge is awarded to districts that have participated for 2-4 years.

TheNYSSB is intended to encourage the study of languages, to identify high school graduates with language and biliteracy skills for employers, to provide universities with additional information about applicants seeking admission and placement, to prepare students with twenty-first century skills, to recognize the value of language instruction, and to affirm the value of diversity in a multilingual society.  Successful candidates will earn three points in English and three points in each world language from a points matrix, which includes course grades, national and state exams, transcripts, and culminating projects.  The NYSSB takes the form of a Seal on the student's diploma and a medallion worn at graduation.
