Personalized Education in Pawling
Dear Pawling Community,
Having just recently concluded a year of service on the Regents’ Blue Ribbon Commission, I could not be more proud of our schools, our Board, and the commitments made over many years to progressive, innovative and inclusive education. We are at a time in education when those commitments have become the expectations of all school systems in New York State. I am equally proud of, and tremendously grateful for, our staff and their commitment to meeting the expectations of the Board of Education and of statewide and locally adopted standards and frameworks to not only meet the expectations of law, but fulfill a vision of inclusion and democratic ideals befitting the best in our nation’s principles
Culturally responsive education means personal education – education that begins with the strengths of each person and each person’s culture. It assumes that we all have unique values and are uniquely able to contribute to society. Such an education is respectful of the individual while affirming all people and identities. Here in Pawling, we strive for a personalized education for our students, one that builds on student strengths toward those ideals in the new Portrait of a Graduate, including cultural competence, global citizenship and effective communication.
A personalized education is also respectful of each family. We invite you to convey your family’s strengths, assets and perspectives to our staff so that we can best partner with you to achieve that personalized experience – both for our children and for our future.
With pride and gratitude,
Kim FontanaPawling Central School District
Free School Meals
We are pleased to announce that all students enrolled at Pawling Central School District will be able to receive a FREE breakfast and lunch meal at school beginning on November 1, 2023.
This implementation is a result of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) expanding access to the federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). CEP allows eligible schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs to offer school meals at no charge to all students.
What does this mean for your child(ren) attending the school(s) identified above? Effective Wednesday, November 1, 2023 all students enrolled at Pawling Central School District will receive meals at no cost to your household. No further action is required of you.
New household income forms are now available. This household income form is to determine eligibility for additional district, state, and federal program benefits that your child(ren) may qualify for. This form now serves as your consent to share determining information throughout the district for additional benefits as needed.
If you have any further questions, please contact us the Food Service Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 845-855-4627.
