Teaming began in Locust Valley Middle School in 1995. Students in these teams share the same teachers for the core subjects of English, Math, Social Studies Science. This team approach permits teachers including Individual Needs teachers to meet daily to coordinate curriculum, assessments, field trips, and special activities for their students. One day a week has been set aside for the team to meet with the parents of students. At least once a year an interdisciplinary event is held to highlight the curriculum focus for the entire year.
