The CiTi School Improvement Team is focused on supporting teachers and leaders with the implementation of high quality, rigorous curriculum and the continuous improvement of instruction aligned with the Next Generation Learning Standards.

We have partnered with DCMO BOCES to continue growing our list of virtual opportunities for this school year. Like all of you, our artists are working hard to modify and adapt to the changing learning environment and are continuously adding new enrichment opportunities that can now be enjoyed virtually. We currently have over 80 high-quality virtual opportunities for students and schools to enjoy with more being added daily. If you have any questions regarding a specific program please feel free to reach out to WJones@citiboces.org.
