Brownstown Charter Township District and Curriculum
Brownstown Township students attend school in one of three school districts including Gibraltar School District, Taylor School District, and Woodhaven-Brownstown School District. Each of these school systems have aligned their standards to meet those of the national Common Core standards and the Michigan Grade Level Expectations. Students are taught by well trained teachers who believe that all students can learn if given the proper tools. The community plays a large part in these districts with such services as volunteering and job internships.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brownstown Charter Township District Curriculum
Writing instruction is a key part of a balanced literacy program. Students will begin their instruction in this subject by first learning the alphabet and each letter’s sound. As students begin to understand phonics, they can then start to read and write basic words. These words will then be formed into sentences and eventually paragraphs. Once students have the ability to write simple paragraphs, they will work on writing longer pieces including a well-organized five paragraph essay.
Elementary students begin by learning what Social Studies means and how to think in terms of geography and history. They start by looking at themselves and how they fit into the world around them. Upper elementary students focus on Michigan state geography and history and then move into studying the United States. Once in middle school, students put everything they have learned to work for them as they look at the world as a whole. Analyzing historical events and their causes plays a critical role in these studies.

Keeping Informed: Recent Brownstown Charter Township Educational News
- Students Honored for Service Work - The Kiwanis Club recently honored students from each school in both the Woodhaven-Brownstown and Gibraltar school districts. Principals and teachers were asked to choose the one student in each school that displayed leadership qualities and gave back to the community. A dinner reception was held in which students received a special book for their school library and a certificate.
- Elementary Students Experience Opera Performance - While most students never get to experience the opera, students at Bates Elementary were treated to a special opera performance in their own school. The production of “The Pied Piper of Hamelin” was put on twice to accommodate both the lower and upper grade levels. Students were able to participate in part of the performance and ask the actors questions after the show.
- Fourth Graders Compete in Writing Contest - Each year the Kiwanis Club sponsors a writing contest for Fourth graders in which they ask students to write about what charity they would help if they had $100. Winners were honored at a dinner reception where they were presented with $100 for the charity of their choice. A local business also matched the Kiwanis Club offer so that each charity received $200.

Chalk Talk: The Basics of Special Education
Special Education is a system that identifies students who have a learning disability and provides accommodations to help those students. Students who need help will receive an Individualized Education Plan, or IEP, that will outline what progress the student should make and how much time the student will receive services from the Special Education teacher. The accommodations in the IEP are meant to create a leveled playing field for students with disabilities in order for them to be successful. Accommodations can range from sitting in the front row to having tests read aloud. Most Special Education students attend class in a General Education setting along with students without disabilities and receive their services while in class. Some students with more severe disabilities who cannot learn in a traditional classroom will be taught in a self-contained classroom for the majority of the day. Whatever the disability happens to be, the Special Education system is there to support students along their educational journey.
