Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Beverly District Curriculum
Beverly Public Schools align instruction with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. In the future, the district plans to implement the PARCC assessment, which links to the Common Core Standards. The district has created curriculum guides that are broken down by grade level, content area, and units of study. The curriculum guides also include overarching lists of all the skills that students should obtain in each content area at the conclusion of each year. For example, second grade students should be able to write stories and poetry with dialogue and in third grade will expand in complexity on such assignments.
Hannah Elementary School is working to improve literacy by incorporating daily 90-minute literacy blocks, providing the necessary interventions for students who need them, giving students ample opportunities to use higher order thinking skills, and including writing across all content areas. The district emphasizes technology integration in instruction, with Beverly High School instilling a 1-to-1 Laptop Learning Initiative in which every student at the high school receives a laptop for academic use.

Keeping Informed: Recent Beverly Educational News
- Teens Learn a Lesson on the Dangers of Texting and Driving - Beverly High School students signed up for a special program have the chance to drive a simulator at fasts speeds in a virtual world of distracted drivers. Through this, they can learn the dangers of texting while driving. Hopefully, the program will have an impact on the young drivers, as one sophomore student pointed out she knows many peers who text or talk on their cell phones while driving.
- Four Beverly Schools Trial New Assessment - Briscoe Middle School and three Beverly elementary schools were selected as field sites for implementation of the PARCC assessment, which aligns with the new Common Core Standards and is said to provide a truer measure of students’ knowledge and skills. Beverly’s technology department first made sure that the schools’ computers were ready for the many classrooms participating, as students typically complete the exam on the computer.
- New Middle School on the Way for Beverly - In a few years, Beverly will be opening a new middle school that will be home to fifth grade—along with grades 6-8, which the current middle school houses. This configuration will allow for the school to be divided into two different learning areas: one for fifth and sixth grade students and the other for seventh and eighth graders. Moving fifth graders to the middle school will also benefit the crowded elementary schools, which are experiencing increases in enrollment.

Chalk Talk: Is Your Child Ready for Kindergarten?
One of the biggest decisions that parents face is when to send their child off to kindergarten. Most kindergarteners are five or six years old, but many enter at the age of four. This issue is usually apparent with children who have late summer birthdays, as they will go to kindergarten being either one of the youngest or one of the oldest students in their class. Social readiness often plays a role in determining if a child is ready for kindergarten or if parents should wait another year. Those who have been attending daycare for many years and, thus, have been around other children often may be more prepared and less shy than students who have been around mostly adults. These students may benefit from an extra year in a Pre-K program. There is a wide array of Pre-K programs today, which offer young students more and more educational opportunities, so this can be a positive thing.
