Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Blue Island District Curriculum
The Illinois Common Core Learning Standards explores key concepts and principles of life sciences, physical science, and earth and space sciences, as well as issues of science, technology, and society in historical and contemporary contexts. Math classes focus on key concepts and a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics within a school year in order to more fully explore those topics.
Overall, the Common Core Learning Standards utilize foundational concepts across the curriculum and emphasize applying these problems to real-world situations. The curriculum is meant to encourage critical thinking across disciplines and give students the educational foundations they will need for college. The schools maintain high expectations for student learning, requiring students to learn at high levels while the school also provides the necessary support and instruction to reach those standards so that they deliver equitable access and support to academic and co-curricular opportunities to maximize individual student success.

Chalk Talk: The Role of Transcripts During College Admissions
The most important part of any college application is the transcript. This is the main thing any college will look at. There are several things the college will consider; one is the GPA. This is an average of scores the applicant has received in all his/her classes. GPA is more complicated than it sounds; some high schools offer more credit for certain classes (called weighted GPA) but a college will configure the GPA their own way, perhaps weighting or unweighting or even ignoring certain classes. The GPA is contingent upon the course selection. Colleges look at how challenging a student’s classes have been. This can mean different things for different kids, and at different schools. It can also depend upon the student’s intended major. One way the college can determine these things is through the school profile, which explains what courses are offered and tells a little about the school.
