  • MOSL Assessments Written below is a letter provided by the Department of Education regarding the MOSL assessments that are administered to students during the school year. Dear Families, Last school year marked the start of Advance, the new evaluation and development system for teachers and administrators. Advance is founded on the belief that all students can achieve and that teachers are the most important school-based factor in influencing that achievement. Understanding how students are performing is a crucial step toward recognizing outstanding teaching and encouraging meaningful improvements in teaching and learning. For this reason student growth, or Measures of Student Learning, is included as part of each teacher’s Advance rating. This fall, as part of Advance, teachers may administer brief ...

  • Author Jennifer Holland will visit IS 220 on October 22nd. & J.H.S 220 PRESENT AUTHOR JENNIFER HOLLAND Wednesday, October 22nd Jennifer Holland is the author of the bestselling UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIPS and UNLIKELY LOVES. Now, she’ll be visiting your child’s school to present her latest release, UNLIKELY HEROES: Unlikely Heroes uncovers and celebrates yet another side of animals that we often think belongs primarily to people—heroism, that indefinable quality of going above and beyond, often for altruistic reasons, often at great personal risk. These 37 inspiring true tales show animals whose quick acts have saved lives, like the pod of dolphins that protected swimmers in New Zealand from a great white shark by forming a screen around them. There are stories of animals who simply and ...

  • Letter to schools with completed relighting Dear Member of John J. Pershing I.S. 220 Community,   In February 2011, New York City announced a comprehensive plan to increase the energy efficiency and environmental quality of NYC schools. As part of the plan, the Department of Education (DOE) removed the fluorescent lighting fixtures in our school building and replaced them with new energy efficient units that do not contain polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).  This work will not only ensure a safer learning environment for your children but also will provide significant environmental benefits and energy savings for the City.    PCBs, a manmade substance, were commonly used in electrical equipment and certain building materials from 1950 to 1978.  The DOE has identified over 700 school buildings with fluorescent lighting ...
