Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Byron Township District Curriculum
The elementary Mathematics curriculum uses Everyday Math as its main resource for teachers and students. The program is based on the spiraling theory in which students are exposed to different Mathematical concepts repeatedly until mastery is reached. A large part of the spiraling curriculum comes in the form of the student journal which is used daily in class. This journal contains Math Boxes which are a series of problems from key concepts.
The Language Arts curriculum has several components in place to help students who are having difficulties reading. One of the biggest components is the READ180 program, which uses technology to help students. READ180 is a program that measures Lexile Reading scores and works to improve those scores for low performing students. Students will go to the READ180 room where they will work with a teacher and other students on specific skills. Next, they will listen to pieces of literature on the computer and answer comprehension questions.

Chalk Talk: Remediation Options for Schools
It has long been known that not all students will learn at the same speed or master every objective equally. However, what are the options for those students that have fallen behind? Many school districts have several choices to remediate students. For students who are having trouble with a particular skill, it may help to offer individual tutoring with the teacher or resource personnel. Students who have fallen behind substantially in a subject will need more intense remediation. One option for these students is for them to be enrolled in one of the many remediation programs that school districts can purchase. One good example is the READ180 program which helps students raise their reading level until they are back on track. It is important for schools to evaluate each student and determine the best course of remediation in order for that student to be successful.
