Welcome to Kaplan Career Academy
To All Kaplan Career Academy Families:
Welcome back to Spring!!!
We hope that this message finds your family in good health and spirits.
As we enter the fourth marking period, it is vital now more than ever for all of our students to be in attendance at school. We are winding down our academic year as the 7th and 8th grade NYS Common Core assessments will be administered as well as the NYS Regents and RCT examinations. Our teachers will begin in depth review for the NYS Regents and RCT examinations in classes beginning on May 27, 2014 and will begin staying after school for additional review time for students beginning May 1, 2014.
In our academic news, our district and building staff members have been putting forth great effort into planning our CDOS and SACC pathways. We have solidified internships and secured job training opportunities. These credentials are instrumental in the preparation for the transition of our students as they leave school to college, post-secondary career/vocational training, and/or the work-force. Please contact us if there are any questions regarding these credentials. Also, we are proud to announce that we have identified our Kaplan Academy third marking period honor roll achievers. In order to make the honor roll, a student has to reach a minimum of an 85 average. In order to make the high honor roll, a student has to reach a minimum of a 92 average. We had five students achieve the honor roll and we had four students achieve the high honor roll. The honor roll achievers will have their names posted on our honor roll bulletin board in the school. Congratulations to our Kaplan student scholars on your achievement. We are all proud of your hard work and effort in your academics!
In our PBIS news, our Kaplan Academy students of the week/month continue to put effort forth in remaining upstanding school citizens as well as avid academics. This is evidenced by their ability to continue to gain daily points in each of their classes and use those points to shop in our school point store. Our PBIS team continues to work diligently at strengthening the system. We are planning a PBIS Spirit Week for the second week in June. This week will commence in our PBIS Field Day. Thank you to our PBIS team for their hard work and students involved in achieving!!!
In our extracurricular news, the Kaplan Career Academy basketball team finished our season in first place in our intra-league play. The Kaplan Career Academy softball team is practicing and if the weather will cooperate, hopes to go on the road for an opportunity to compete in our first intra-league game on May 15, 2014. Thanks to coach Fasolino and Mr. Cooper for following up with agency staff, instructional staff, and parents to ensure that our students are held accountable and in turn have earned the opportunity to participate.
Looking ahead to the fourth marking period, we urge all families to pay attention to the following dates:
April 14, 17, & 18- Spring Break
April 30-May 2- Grade 7 & 8 NYS Common Core Math Assessments
May 26- Memorial Day
June 16- Last day of classes
June 16 @ 6PM- 8th Grade Moving Up Ceremony

Once again, we thank you for your continued support and entrusting us with the education of your children. We are encouraged by our growth as evidence of that. We will continue to do everything in our power to continue to expand our program to open up new opportunities for our students.
Best wishes in 2014!!!
