Beaverton District and Curriculum
The goal for Beaverton District Schools is to show continuous and meaningful progress toward academic success. Students, in collaboration with educators and parents, will leave the district prepared for both post-secondary and marketplace success. The Beaverton School District’s Academic and Strategic Plan is based on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) adopted both state-wide in Oregon, as well as nationally. The curriculum is aided by the districts’ Full Option Graduate Profile (FOGP), used to ensure college and career readiness.
We currently cover the following Beaverton-area school district: Beaverton School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Beaverton District Curriculum
In 2010, Beaverton School District Board enacted the THRIVE Strategic Plan for student growth and achievement, which focuses distinctly on six areas: Technology, High Quality Empowered Staff, Responsible and Sustainable Stewardship of Resources, Individual Student Growth, Volunteerism and Engagement Service Learning, and Equity in Student Outcomes. Also to be utilized is the web-based “Plan & Profile,” a tool that will assist students K-12 to chart their academic goals and progress in a real-time technology forum.
Beaverton students are guided by a tiered approach to learning through their K-12 experience. Reading skills are introduced in every grade, and by sixth grade students should be able to read for meaning and understanding. Writing also follows a structured curriculum in which Kindergartners are given the basic skills of writing letters and are ready to start writing sentences in first grade. By the time the elementary writing curriculum is complete in sixth grade, students are able to write a five paragraph summary essay.

Chalk Talk: Developing an Understanding of Math Concepts for Young Children
Without even realizing it, children actually recognize many math concepts as they grow. They know that the pile of blocks you have is more than the two they may have in front of them. They know that Daddy or Mommy is bigger than they are. So, while the beginning of the concepts may be there, very young children are lacking the academic language needed to fully understand those concepts. There are many steps parents can take in assisting an early concept-learning of Math in their children. Begin to build the language by using correct terms for items (tall and short, empty and full, etc.), use song and fun games to repetitively enforce counting, incorporate counting and math language into real-life questions with people your children know as the “stars,” have your child classify objects that go together, compare objects, or order objects in a series.
