Our school partners with BrightBytes - an educational research organization - to explore our use of technology for learning and improve support that is provided to your children.
We invite parents, teachers, and students to answer a few questions about your technology use. It should take only a few minutes to complete on any device with Internet access.
Teachers and students will complete during the school day. For our parents, if you have children at T. J. Connor and the Middle/High School, please consider completing both questionnaires so that we have a more complete picture of technology use for all of our students.
Surveys can be reached at https://www.wheatland.k12.ny.us/Domain/71.
Thank you for your support.
My School, My Voice Parent Survey
Please participate in the end of the school year Parent Survey to share what you think about your child’s school. This survey is anonymous and will take about five minutes to complete. Your answers will be combined with those of other parents in the District to describe what Wheatland-Chili parents think, do, and experience. This information will be available to parents.
This survey is voluntary. We hope that you will take the time to share your voice with us. Together, we can find better ways to communicate and provide customer service.

New York State is required by the United States Department of Education to identify low performing schools. This identification is based on test results from the annual grades three through eight and Regents assessments in English Language Arts, Math, and Science, as well as chronic absenteeism (absent 10% or more). For high schools, the identification also includes social studies, graduation rates, and a new measure of college, career, and civic readiness. Student participation in the three through eight assessments is a factor in the identification where participation is less than 95%.
The accountability status of our schools and District is as follows:
T. J. Connor Elementary School – Good Standing 2018-2019, Potential Targeted Support and Improvement School 2019-2020
Middle/High School – Good Standing
Wheatland-Chili Central School District – Target District
This information was embargoed and not available for sharing until late in the day on Thursday, January 17.
Our identification as a Target District relates to the performance of a small subgroup of our students (21 students) in grades three through five who sat for the assessments in English Language Arts and Math in 2017-2018. This District designation results from the potential designation for T. J. Connor in 2019-2020.
We have worked over the past years to support all of our students toward higher performance and will continue to do so. All struggling students are supported through our strategic Response to Intervention Plan including academic and social and emotional support. Students receive intensive individual interventions based on their needs.
Attached is Five Things Every Parent Should Know about New York State’s Plan for the Every Student Succeeds Act for your reference.
