New York State defines community schools as “public schools that emphasize family engagement and are characterized by strong partnership and additional supports for students and families.” It is the mission of the Middleburgh Central School District Community School Program (CSP) to support school improvement efforts that lead to better student outcomes.
During the school year, our focus has been on providing both remediation and enrichment after school. Students have the opportunity to receive snack, learn relaxation and mindfulness techniques, get homework help, and gain access to computer-based learning.
Some of our primary goals moving forward involve nurturing our community connections and grow them. If you have ideas and/or would like to partner with us please contact the CSP Coordinator.
Middleburgh Central School district is excited to announce that we are collaborating with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schoharie and Otsego Counties to offer a three-hour, five-day a week 4-H Youth Development Afterschool Program for all Kindergarten-Eighth grade students.
This community partnership with the Cornell Cooperative Extension will run Monday-Friday and follow the Middleburgh School District calendar. Locations will include the Elementary and Jr./Sr. High School.
After school program fees will be waived for the first 44 families that register for the program. Also, transportation will be provided daily after the program. Busing will follow the A, B, and C routes and will not be door-to-door drop-offs.
At the after school program, students are provided:
- A nutritious snack
- A supervised place for homework
- An opportunity to explore the 4-H club experience, which is integrated with STEM
- Supervised recreation in the gym or outdoors
