Castlegar District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The district contains 3,700 students in 10 schools: six elementary schools (K-7), one combined elementary-secondary school (K-9), two secondary schools (8-12), and an alternate school (7-12). School District No. 20 (Kootenay-Columbia) — along with all schools in the province of British Columbia — is in the process of implementing a new provincial curriculum that reflects the increasingly globalized world while maintaining a focus on traditional areas of learning.

  • Our daughter was able to improve her science test scores after only one semester of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Castlegar District Curriculum

The new curriculum will ensure that essential elements of learning are applied consistently, individual teachers will have freedom and will have the ability to differentiate instruction to meet the diverse needs of each their students. The provincial assessments will be redesigned to align with the new curriculum. In addition, the district utilizes BC’s Framework for Enhancing Student Learning. This framework focuses on effective system-wide planning in order for continuous improvement to occur.

Multi-year plans are developed by districts and schools, be updated and approved on an annual basis, and be reviewed by parents in a school (PAC). SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, results-focused, and time-bound) goals must be developed. It is also important to review the evidence and student learning, reflect on how the school/district is doing and what needs to be changed, and revise priorities and actions. This framework also focuses on particular groups of students, such as Aboriginal learners and children with special needs.

Keeping Informed: Recent Castlegar Educational News

  • Stanley Humphries Transforms Slogan, Mascot - Led by Stanley Humphries Secondary School’s Marketing 12 class, the school transformed its look by adopting a new slogan, team name, and logo/mascot for the 2015-16 school year. Students associated three themes with their school—strong academics, school pride, and uniqueness—and an eleventh grader created the new slogan, “Achieve. Lead. Succeed,” based on these themes. Students and staff also voted on the Coyote for their team name, logo, and mascot to create an identifiable brand for both boys’ and girls’ athletics.
  • SHSS Eats for Money - A boy, a girl, and a dog ate to raise money for charity as part of an eating competition at Stanley Humphries Secondary School. An eleventh grader and twelfth grader downed foot-long sub sandwiches for a food bank and women’s shelter, respectively, while Charlie the chocolate lab chowed down a bowl of dog food for the SPCA. Prior to the event, students could vote for who they think would win by donating to the charity of their choice.
  • SHSS Students Help Others in Ecuador - Twelve students from Stanley Humphries Secondary School’s Rotary Interact Club traveled to Malchingui, Ecuador (population: 4,000), where they helped community members build a cancha—a multipurpose sports park with soccer nets and basketball hoops. In addition, each student took two suitcases filled with clothing that the Castlegar community donated to the Ecuadorians. The Rotary Interact Club spent two years holding many fundraising events to make the trip possible.

Chalk Talk: The Short ‘I’ Sound

The short ‘I’ sound is one of the vowel sounds students are introduced to at the primary grade levels. Words such as Jim, bit, and dip contain this sound. These words all follow a CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) pattern, which usually contain short vowels. When words contain double L’s, such as will and thrill, the ‘I’ is almost always short. In contrast, words that follow a CVCV (consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel) pattern and end in ‘E,” generally have a long ‘I’ sound (e.g.: bike and hind); there are some exceptions, however, such as give. Some words that follow a CVCC pattern, such as gift and milk, consist of a short ‘I,’ but this is not a rule.
