“We are excited to welcome several new teachers this year.

During the recent new teacher orientation, Uniondale School District administrators introduced the new teachers to the District’s new website and technology-driven grading system. Using the system, Uniondale parents can access grades in real time as teachers submit them, helping improve parent-teacher synergy, student support and the home-school connection.
According to the National Education Association, students with involved parents are more likely to earn higher grades and test scores, enroll in higher-level programs, pass their classes, attend school regularly, have better social skills, graduate on time and enroll in postsecondary education.
“By combining parents’ and teachers’ efforts, we can help motivate our ambitious student body and support them to leverage their educations and turn their dreams into realities,” said Dr. Lloyd. “The District is excited for the start of the 2016-2017 school year, and we look forward to helping every student achieve his or her potential.”
