New Courses Presented to the Board of Education

Despite the serious financial strains on our school and district, Wheatley continues to develop and offer new courses to best match student interest, district initiatives and state requirements. At last night’s Board of Education meeting, Dr. Joyce Bernstein, Secondary Chair for Mathematics, and Mr. Brian McConaghy, Secondary Chair for Social Studies, presented the new courses being offered in these two areas. Although the 2014-15 academic year might seem far away, students have already begun the process of selecting their courses for next year.
