HCSD administrators and Board members on Opening Day.

During their 50th high school reunion, members of the HHS Class of 1966 visited the Olana State Historic Site.

Many community members share their time to participate in Hudson Reads, a weekly reading mentor program that aims to strengthen the reading skills and confidence of students at Montgomery C. Smith Intermediate School.

Congratulations to Hudson's girls' and boys' varsity basketball teams on undefeated 2016 seasons and Patroon Conference titles!

One of HCSD's many student murals. The "We Are One" mural, painted by Class of 2013 students, perfectly illustrates the cultural diversity of our district.

Assessment Calendars

The Hudson City School District is committed to providing your child with a high-quality, well-rounded education that advances their intellectual, social and emotional development in preparation for college and/or career. This mission includes the use of formative and summative assessments that provide us with detailed, targeted information that identifies your child’s strengths and areas of growth. With this valuable information at our fingertips, we are able to modify or enhance your child’s instruction to ensure they reach their full growth potential each school year.

It is important to us that you know what assessments your child is taking, when they are given, and why they are given. Learn more and view the assessment calendars for the 2016-17 school year.

District Insights: Welcome back Bluehawks

(September 13, 2016) -- There is always a great sense of excitement and opportunity as we embark on a new school year. Thankfully, teaching is one of the rare professions where we get a clean slate every year and that brings hope and possibility. That is especially true this year. This is the first time in many years that we are opening our doors not designated by the state for anything. This year, we are truly beginning with a clean slate and for the first time in a long time we face the future unencumbered by negative labels.

Just as our championship athletic teams achieved their success through teamwork, this accomplishment was also a cooperative effort. It took a great deal of planning, determination and most of all, teamwork in every building at every level, as well as coordination with our community partners. We don’t want to talk only about the past or just about this school year, we want to focus on the next four years and beyond. We want to focus on our future as a district on the rise.

District Insights: Volunteers help make it all possible

April is National Volunteer Month and April 18-22 is Public School Volunteer Week. This is a time to recognize volunteers — those who donate their time to benefit others. Our school district needs funding to operate, of course, but it also benefits from all the community volunteers that help make things possible by donating their time to support the district and its programs.

HCSD graduation rate at a 10-year high

Destination Graduation! Hudson CSD's graduation rate has been on a steady incline, up nearly 20 percentage points since 2012, and Superintendent Suttmeier said the credit goes to our teachers.

“For the first time in a long time, our high school report card has green checks instead of red Xs,” she said. “We should celebrate and recognize the good things that are happening, while there’s still more work to be done...There will be additional challenges, but we’re on the right track.” Using data to track individual student progress and "tell the story," the district has been able to identify key areas and put programs into place to address them.

"The credit lies with the teachers,” Dr. Suttmeier said. “They take the special interest. Once they had that data, they had something they could look at, they could draw a line to each student. All hands were on deck, looking to see how they could help students succeed.” Read the full article >>
