In an effort to provide new teachers and teaching assistants with a comprehensive introduction to the school district, Rocky Point hosted a new teacher orientation program in late August.

The enthusiastic new faculty members, who will be teaching a variety of subjects and grade levels at the district’s four schools, spent the day learning the ins and outs of the school district. Central administrators facilitated the orientation program, which was designed to help the new instructional staff members receive an extensive overview of Rocky Point’s curriculum, special education program, educational technology resources and policies.
