Welcome to the Mid Hudson Social Studies Council

Mission Statement

The Mid Hudson Social Studies Council is a educational non-profit organization. It is affiliated with the New York State Council for the Social Studies (NYSCSS). We provide our members with at least two educational and/or informational workshops per year. We also keep members informed about what is happening on the state level with regard to Social Studies programs.

The Executive Board meets to plan for conferences and events. A newsletter, The Packet, provides our membership with lesson plans, book reviews, institutes and workshops for their professional use.
