Bossier City District and Curriculum
The Bossier Parish School Board follows the standards-based Common Core Curriculum. The curriculum design is such that students focus on key areas of learning within each subject, gaining a distinct depth of knowledge each year. This is done to bring about higher order thinking and analysis skills which students will need for post-secondary work and learning. Another aim of the curriculum is that students make connections between subjects, and to that end, the district offers electives to engage excitement and foster connections.
We currently cover the following Bossier City-area school district: Bossier Parish School Board.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bossier City District Curriculum
Students in Bossier Parish Schools are taught to use mathematics in real-world situations. Numeracy, geometry, algebra, measurement, probability and statistics are taught at each grade level. As students increase in skill and understanding, the focus moves from computation to problem-solving strategies with emphasis on real world applications. Advanced math skills are expected at the secondary levels in order for students to be college and career-ready by graduation.
Reading, writing to inform, and creative writing are skills students are taught to practice throughout their educational experience. Understanding and decoding meaning from a variety of text in book, magazines, digital and graphic forms are skills that students will need both in school and in the world of work. As student grow and learn, writing also plays a part in literacy classes as well as other core classes such as Social Studies and Math. Being about learning and informing, writing is a critical skill that students should master by high school.

Chalk Talk: Choosing an Extracurricular Activity
Art, music, sports and other extracurricular activities help children to become better students, learn how to cooperate and work as a team member, and provide a “well-rounded” education. Sometimes families wonder, “How many of these activities should my child join?” Often the answer is found by considering the areas in which your child is interested. Students, who shy away from one activity, may actually have a talent to develop in another area. These opportunities can promote self-confidence and a sense of responsibility. However, one rule of thumb parents may want to consider is “Can my children participate in these activities and earn good grades without showing signs of stress or anxiety?” Warning signs for anxiety may include an overall sense of sadness, a drop in grades or school attendance, and being sick more frequently. Attending extracurricular events with children, having open communication with your child and watching school progress can be determining factors in which sports or activities your child can handle without undue pressure or stress. As courses become more rigorous, schedule adjustments may be necessary.
