NYSED names Middleburgh a district in Good Standing, Jr./Sr. High School also in Good Standing

The Middleburgh Central School District is pleased to announce that it has been informed by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) that under new guidelines for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) it is no longer a Focus District and the Jr./Sr. High School is no longer a Focus School. Both the district and the Jr./Sr. High School have been restored to Good Standing.

“This new designation by the state reflects the hard work of our students, teachers, and staff members,” said Superintendent Brian P. Dunn. “Efforts that began under previous administrations have been continued and enhanced over the past year and we are now seeing those results. The Middleburgh community has a school and staff they can be proud of, and our students can be sure they are getting an education that prepares them for the future.”

Districts statewide are judged by several criteria under ESSA, and the district will continue the good work that it has started to maintain the school’s Good Standing.
