P.S. 236’s Goals

In looking at trends from a city and state prospective as well as utilizing ARIS, summative and formative assessments and our own in house data sources, we can see that our needs are the following:

  • Increase the number of students scoring at level 4 from level 3.
  • Increase the number of students making progress within level 3 and level 4.
  • Continue to have our Special Education subgroup make exemplary gains

A review of data suggests that student weaknesses in ELA are in the following areas:

  • Determining the meaning of new words using context clues, a dictionary or a glossary
  • Reading to collect and interpret data, facts and ideas from multiple sources
  • Identifying information that is implied rather than stated
  • Observing the rules of punctuation, capitalization and spelling and using correct grammatical construction

 A review of data suggests that student weaknesses in Math are in the following areas:

  • Thorough Problem Solving involving the showing of all work
  • Use of math vocabulary appropriately

 P.S. 236 will work toward strengthening these areas in student performance and progress.


What is the ARIS Parent Link?

The New York City Department of Education's Achievement Reporting and Innovation System (ARIS) provides a single place where our educators can go to find and study important information about your child. Principals and teachers use this information to find out how to best help your child.


ARIS Parent Link makes this same important information available for you, so you can work together with your child, principal and teacher to help your child learn. ARIS Parent Link uses secure login procedures to be sure that a child's information can be seen only by authorized members of his or her family.
