Bogota District and Curriculum
Bogota School District serves about 1,150 students in three schools. Bogota earned a Bronze medal ranking on the U.S. News & World Report’s 2015 Best High Schools list. The district follows the New Jersey Core Content Standards which provide comprehensive, college preparatory learning objectives for all academic subjects. Knowledge, skills, and conceptual awareness are developed each year along the major topics in each subject. What that means in practice, is that students learn about patterns and relationships during elementary and middle school years in preparation for algebra in high school.
We currently cover the following Bogota-area school district: Bogota School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bogota District Curriculum
Bogota School District has posted curriculum guides for each grade level and content area that list the skills and content students are expected to learn by the end of the school year. The high school curriculum guides are organized by specific courses. For the high school, there is also a course guide that describes each specific class. The district has also posted both fiction and nonfiction resources—as called for by the Common Core Standards—that specifically help students gain mastery of each literacy skill.
For math, there is a pacing guide that outlines which concepts are concentrated on at which points the year. For example, by fifth grade, students must be able to solve multi-digit multiplication problems and by seventh grade, they have to compute multi-step problems with both positive and negative rational numbers as well as single-variable equations. The math curriculum also focuses on mathematical literacy, communication of mathematical thought, mathematical fluency, procedural skills, and the application of concepts

Chalk Talk: Reading and Writing in Kindergarten
In kindergarten, students begin reading at a very basic level. Much of the focus is on phonics and phonemic awareness, as students learn to recognize letters and their sounds and decode, or sound out, words. As students learn more words, they can begin to read simple sentences. Books or selections that they may read will contain these simple sentences and often will be full of rhyme, repetition, and words that can be decoded. Kindergarten teachers frequently read books aloud to their students and gauge comprehension through asking meaningful questions before, during, and after they read. Students gain a basic understanding of elements such as characters, setting, and story events.
