    The Office of Curriculum and Instruction provides oversight and coordination of the PreK-12 educational program in the Great Neck Public Schools. The Office's major functions include:

    • Curriculum
    • Grants
    • Professional Development
    • Selection Committees
    • Staffing


    Our curriculum is aligned with the Common Core Standards, which were developed in collaboration with teachers, school administrators, and experts, to provide a clear and consistent framework to prepare our children for college and the workforce. This state-led effort was coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). Forty-five states (including New York State), the District of Columbia, and four territories have adopted the Common Core Standards.
