District Committees

The district creates committees to help improve our school. The committees work to create the best environment for our students and staff. If you'd like to submit feedback to one of our committees please complete this feedback form.


The curriculum committee is made up of teachers. These teachers write and review curriculum in all content areas. We welcome all comments regarding curriculum expectations.

Insignia Series Assist/Dip
Gouverneur Central School purchased a Insignia Series Assist/Dip machine to be used in the fitness center in the High School. The Insignia Series Assist Dip/Chin features multiple hand positions for added variety and to accommodate a range of exercisers. The machine will be available for both student and staff use.

The storage shed has been placed next to the primary playground. It is being used to store playground equipment that is too large to be stored in classrooms.

Three medium and three large tricycles are available for prek-2nd grade students to use during recess.

Flag Belt System
The flag belt system is available to all students in the district who participate in the after-school program as well as school sponsored fun runs.
