We are deeply saddened by the tragic news from Florida. As educators and as parents, it is difficult to comprehend such catastrophic events. We feel closely connected to the children, teachers and staff, families and community who were so devastated by this loss of innocent lives. I want to reassure you that we take school safety and security very seriously across the Binghamton City School District. We are vigilant and proactive when it comes to our children's safety and have clear plans and procedures to deal with emergency situations. We will look to learn what we can from this latest school tragedy and use that information over the coming weeks to determine what, if any, improvements can be made in security and response procedures. [...click for more]

We are introducing a new, more efficient student absence reporting system called SafeArrival.  This system will make it easier for you to report your child's absence and easier for staff to respond to unexplained student absences. With SafeArrival, you are asked to report your child's absence in advance using any of these convenient methods: Toll- free phone number, mobile app or website. The new system will start on Feb. 1, 2018 in East Middle School and Roosevelt Elementary School.

It’s that time of year when the Binghamton City School District starts looking at the numbers for the upcoming 2018-2019 school budget. Part of the process of putting together a budget for the district is gathering input from our stakeholders, like parents, community members and staff. We want to know what is important to you and your family.  Make your voices heard, fill out a quick budget survey and let us know what you think. There will also be an opportunity to share your input at a community round table budget meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday Jan. 9 at the Boys and Girls Club of Binghamton.

The district is creating a Family Engagement Task Force and would like your input. We realize that the only way to improve engagement, communication and collaboration is to listen and learn from our families as to what we can do better to support them. The Task Force will meet three times this year and anticipate the first meeting to be held in February 2018. We would like some input on the location and times that work best for families. We will also use this information as we plan future events. We appreciate you taking the time to complete this survey and hope you are interested and able to join us. Thank you. Here is a link to the Family Engagment Survey [...click for more]

Just as with any house, our school buildings require maintenance and, eventually, things must be replaced, updated or rebuilt. Many of our buildings were constructed in the 1950s and, with more than 5,500 students in 10 buildings, maintaining the infrastructure is an important part of providing a safe environment to educate, empower and challenge our students. The capital project will affect every building in the district, with the exception of MacArthur.  The project will be funded by state aid and capital reserves, so there will be NO impact on the local tax levy.

There is no one major building or renovation project in this package, but, rather a collection of upgrades and renovations in each building impacting things like lighting, learning spaces, windows, computer networking infrastructure and signage to name a few. In general, there will be improvements made in the following categories: safety and security, building infrastructure, learning environment and information technology.

The community got a chance to sample home grown vegetables grown by students.Students planted seeds in the spring with the school's garden club and tended to them throughout the season. The students recently harvested the vegetables and brought them in to the kitchen where the school's chef prepared the meal. Wednesday's menu included butternut mac-n-cheese, roasted root veggies, pumpkin soup, beet lemonade and other healthy food. Watch the story on WICZ and WBNG [...click for more]
