Barrie District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Public Schools in Barrie use the Ontario Curriculum which is developed at the provincial level as a series of standards of learning for students across the span of academic subjects. The curriculum describes the skills and knowledge students will need within each subject area to be successful in their future pursuits. The Ontario Curriculum has been designed to address both the content needed and the conceptual framework for the content. In conjunction with the development of a comprehensive curriculum is also the development of assessment tools that measure student’s success in mastering necessary skills and knowledge.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Barrie District Curriculum
With a focus on STEM studies, world languages, and multiculturalism, students in Barrie are introduced to topics that will prepare them to enter their adult lives on a path of their choosing. All students receive instruction in academic courses and are required to demonstrate proficiency in their core subjects on the EQAO assessments. The Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics and the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test are both requirements for graduation. With the fundamentals in place, students have the opportunity to take courses in areas of their choosing with options that include immersive language learning and environmental education.
A goal of the secondary curriculum is to increase independence in learning and students should be familiar with their options and prepare by taking any necessary pre-requisites. Advanced Placement courses are available for those who want to take college level classes and Experience Education is available to those who wish to pursue a work learning experience. Another feature of the curricular expectations is a community involvement component in which students need to complete community service hours as part of their graduation requirements. This allows students to choose how they serve so they have opportunities that speak to their interests.

Chalk Talk: Educating the Whole Child
Schools’ number one objective is to teach students skills to become independent beyond their walls. Many students will succeed simply by attending classes, completing assignments, and passing assessments. However, some students may struggle from external complications, inhibiting their abilities to learn and develop in a normal environment. Students may be homeless. They may have parents who suffer from illness or are caring for someone gravely ill. Depression, anxiety, or other emotional and mental disorders could create chaos in their lives. Many students may have parents who have served in the recent United States’ wars, leading to difficulties with relationships and post-traumatic stress disorder. In many cases, students could be from homes with financial issues, which can lead to any number of negative stressors. Whatever the individual or familial hardships children may face, it is necessary to support their emotional, mental, and social growth alongside their academic progress.
