Support for students and families

Digital Responsibility and Resources for Parents and Families

Our students are social. And smart. We are teaching our students in Elmira to be smart and social, especially online. At the Elmira City School District, we know teaching students to use technology safely is critical to their health and wellbeing.

There has been a huge rise in social media threats, trends of violence and vandalism. If you see something, say something. And think before you post.

The Elmira City School District is fortunate to have available a multitude of academic and supportive services for all students. One of the cornerstones of these services lies in the school counseling office. The school counseling department pulls together the academic, social, and emotional needs of each student, and makes sure that they are being met by the school and district in the most appropriate manner.

The Elmira City School District Comprehensive School Counseling program is based on standards and student competencies developed by the American School Counselor Association for academic, personal/social, and career development and the New York State Learning Standards.
