The Office of Curriculum and Instruction provides oversight and coordination of the PreK-12 educational program in the Great Neck Public Schools. The Office's major functions include:

  • Curriculum
  • Grants
  • Professional Development
  • Selection Committees

The Common Core Standards were developed in collaboration with teachers, school administrators, and experts, to provide a clear and consistent framework to prepare our children for college and the workforce. This state-led effort was coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). Forty-five states (including New York State), the District of Columbia, and four territories have adpoted the Common Core Standards. To learn more about the Common Core Standards and how they impact instruction and learning in the Great Neck Public Schools, we have provided the information below:
