Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Aurora District Curriculum
Instruction in Southern Cayuga CSD English Language Arts classes is based on standards that help students develop important literacy, communication, and analysis skills. Among these skills are reading closely, recognizing an author’s point of view, researching texts, textual criticism, and verbal and written communication. These skills are further aligned to the writing curriculum which requires students to use their developing reading skills in real applications.
Instruction in Southern Cayuga CSD math classes is based on standards that focus on the major topics of numeracy and operations, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. Mathematic literacy and the ability to communicate math thought and to perform mental math are goals of the curriculum. Students are also taught how to select the best computational tool and to attend to precision in problem-solving.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Districts' Technology Budgets
It is time for school district to make better decisions about their education technology purchases. They can start by making those decisions based on student needs, not on what other schools have and what technology sales representatives tell them they should have. Sure, spending enough money to provide every single student with a laptop or tablet will impress lots of parents and people from other school districts; however, providing students with that many technological devices does not accurately reflect what is going on in today’s classes. Yes, students use computers, but they spend most of their time at their desks taking part in teachers’ lessons, reading books, or working with pen and paper. If that is the case, why spend millions of dollars on devices that are going to collect dust? That money could go to rebuilding infrastructure, improving lunches, and field trips.
