The WITF Educational Services department has created a Central Dauphin School District Curriculum Guide for ELA, mathematics and science. These guides are organized by the “Big Ideas” of each content area and list weekly TV and radio programming matched to the “Big Ideas” for each grade level. This will provide families with a schedule that they can rely on, and they will know what time and channel their children should watch to supplement the instruction you are providing within Google Classroom.
READ! READ! READ! If you do not have books to read, now is your chance!
The Dauphin County Library System (DCLS) and the Central Dauphin School District (CDSD) have formed a new partnership while schools and The Library are closed due to COVID-19. With this partnership, CD students can use their school ID number to access The Library’s eResources. While students are attempting to finish out the year at home, these resources can support their education and are accessible 24/7.
