Batesville District and Curriculum
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.
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.

Keeping Informed: Recent Batesville Educational News

- 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.

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.
