HARRISON, N.Y. -- The results of state standardized testing for elementary and middle school students top this week's news in Harrison.
- Scores dropped this year on the math and English language arts exams administered to students in grades three through eight. The lower scores are the result of a change in the tests following a switch to the Common Core curriculum.
- Harrison was accused by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development of having zoning laws that segregate against low-income families. Harrison was among the towns identified as lacking zoning laws that encourage affordable housing.
- Harrison's 7,000 residential property cards will soon be available online. The Assessor's Office is currently in the process of scanning all of the cards to make them more readily available to real estate agents, homeowners and appraisers.
