South Orangetown Central School District

XLT Retreat 2023

The development of a concise SOCSD graduate profile was the focus of the District’s Extended Leadership Team (XLT) annual retreat yesterday. “Work on the graduate profile began last summer and will culminate in the coming months with building-level profiles and rubrics. We’ll also be reviewing systems and practices to ensure that they support this effort,” noted incoming Superintendent of Schools Brian Culot, Ed.D.

Building teams shared their thinking and progress made to date toward defining school-specific student characteristics before moving into mixed K-12 groups to discuss common themes and competencies that could inform an overarching graduate profile.

Culot added that the XLT has been an integral part of the District’s planning and continuous improvement process for more than 15 years. “This team plays a critical role in K-12 alignment and goal-setting and the annual retreat is an important opportunity for our teacher leaders and administrators to collectively reflect on the progress of the past year and chart the course for the year ahead,” he said.

Stay tuned for more information regarding the development of the SOCSD graduate profile in the upcoming school year!
