Code X – Coming to the Saranac Lake Middle School

The Saranac Lake Middle School has a new text book series for the middle school ELA department.. Suzanne Nicholas is a teacher in the 6th grade and also the reading specialist at the middle school… She says the new series will be aligned with the common core, and designed to provide continuity between the 6th 7th and 8th grade levels.. Don Carlisto represents the teacher’s association.. He credits the trust between the district and the teacher’s ability for allowing the practitioners to make decisions about common core  implementation..

The new series is published by Scholastic.. It’s called the Common Core “Code X” and the School Board has approved the purchase of the new materials which will arrive in classrooms in the middle school next year…  This will be the second full year of the availability of the resource which has also been adopted by New York City Schools and that means by the time implementation begins in Saranac Lake, Scholastic will have had time to work any kinks out of the new curriculum..
