Albany District and Curriculum
The Albany Public Schools provide a valuable education for its students by following the standards set up by the Oregon Department of Education. The standards represent the learning expectations within each subject at each grade level and follow along a path so that students begin by developing fundamental skills and progress towards more advanced coursework. The Math and Language Arts frameworks follow Common Core Standards and are tightly focused on the key topics in the subject, allowing the students to gain depth in their learning of these subjects.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Albany District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum at Albany Public School is framed around working in small groups of students. This helps educators see if a student needs additional instruction. Students are also shown how mathematics is used in science and everyday life. They learn how to tell time, count change and complete equations from the most basic addition to the more complicated equation they will face in trigonometry or calculus. The curriculum that is developed for these students help them become problem-solvers as adults.
Science, in Albany Public Schools, is designed so that students have many hands-on activities. In elementary, the students are able to see the changes that frogs go through in their life as they adopt tadpoles in their classrooms. As the students progress they are given many more opportunities to use the scientific method. These students use microscopes, dissecting tools and other equipment so that the students are able to see the world through the eyes of a scientist.

Chalk Talk: How to Build Independence Through Tasks
From the time children are born, it is the natural tendency of parents to hover and help children with everything. Children have the need to feel independence. To assist in this there are various tasks that parents can allow children to do. Children can help with laundry. Depending on the age, there are different ways that they can help. Toddlers can be responsible for putting clothing in drawers or in laundry hampers. As they mature into preschool age children they also can match socks. Six-year old children can fold laundry, while children at the end of elementary, can be placed in charge of laundry. Children can also be given the responsibility for their own toys from the time they are toddlers. One more way to help children feel independent is to allow them to set their own bedtime when they are about twelve. Parents may need to decide at what time the television or computers are turned off, but this will only help the children when they set their bedtimes.
