PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- The results of standardized testing for elementary and middle school students tops this week's news in Port Chester.

  • Scores for both Port Chester and Rye Brook students dropped this year on the math and English language arts exams given to students in grades three through eight. The lower scores are the result of changes to the tests following the switch to the Common Core curriculum.
  • Port Chester officials have enacted a new policy on how many special events the village will co-sponsor per year. The village will contribute $1,000 to a maximum of five non-profits holding events per year.
  • Port Chester High School hosted a kick ball tournament Tuesday in memory of Natalia Crespo Eirin, who grew up in Port Chester and died of brain cancer in 2006. Funds raised at the event benefit the Natalia Crespo Eirin Foundation, which provides scholarships to students and helps those living with cancer.
