Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Batesville District Curriculum
Although the magnet schools emphasize special areas, they highly prioritize all-around instruction and offer a standards-based curriculum. The district incorporates the Common Core Standards in literacy and math, with the English language arts standards also being intertwined with social studies, science, and technical subjects. Educators teaching at the same grade level and the same content areas have worked together to ensure that they are covering the same material—with similar guiding questions—at approximately the same point in the school year.
Southside is a smaller, more traditional school district, serving 1,600 students. The district contains three public schools: an elementary school with PK-4, a middle school with grades 5-8, and a 9-12 high school. Southside Elementary has greatly improved its state test scores throughout the years, with third and fourth graders most recently scoring between 85 and 95 percent proficiency in both math and literacy.

Batesville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Batesville School District contains a public junior high schools (grades 7-9) and high school (grades 10-12). However, the district is unique in that all of its K-6 elementary schools are of the magnet variety, meaning that they specialize in particular disciplines. The four schools each specialize in one of the following areas: visual and performing arts; STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and sports; health wellness and medical science; and math, science, and technology. The six schools are comprised of a total of 3,100 students.
Keeping Informed: Recent Batesville Educational News
- Students Celebrate Earth Week - Students from the Batesville district’s West Visual and Performing Arts Magnet School visited the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) in order to celebrate Earth Week. The students were divided into groups and rotated among various interactive presentation stations. They also received a tour of the building and demonstrations of lab tests.
- Sixth Graders Discover Octopus - Sixth graders are usually too old to engage in show-and-tell, but one day, Central Magnet students were excited to catch a glimpse of what their peers brought to the school’s Sea Lab. The day before, a group of students found a small octopus in its shell on the beach and put it in a pot to bring to class. Their teacher was shocked and called the local campus aquarium, which is considering displaying the octopus.
- Future Teachers in the Making - Southside High Schools offers an Introduction to Teaching class for students who may be interested in pursuing teaching as a profession. Recently, seven “teaching cadets” had the opportunity to job-shadow Southside faculty members. The students shadowed at either the middle school or high school and worked with a variety of personnel, including school nurses, guidance counselors, and cafeteria workers who prepared students’ lunches.

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: What Are Professional Development Days?
Professional development periods were not designed to be used as clerical times, and with today’s rapidly evolving society, it is essential that teachers gain valuable information that they can take to their classrooms during these sessions. Perhaps a teacher, content area department, or administrator is presenting a new instructional method and its effectiveness during an in-service day. If this is the case, there are a few things that should be done and mentioned during the presentation. Educators should give fact- and research-based information and examples that show why the method works and explain how it can practically be used in all classrooms—not only their content area. In addition, they should have the teacher participants complete a brief activity demonstrating the technique that they are sharing to ensure that they are involved. If teachers have discovered effective, research-based methods that they wish to share with the entire staff or have immense knowledge of specific instructional technology, they should not hesitate to ask their principals if they can give in-service day presentations.
