Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cahokia District Curriculum
The core academic experience seeks to integrate learning as much as possible so that students see the relevant connections between what they learn in class. Literacy in math and science is also emphasized and students are expected to learn how to both read and communicate in all their subject areas proficiently. To that end, non-fiction is increasingly emphasized and students have a wide range of writing assignments.
The physical education curriculum supports the health, wellness, and physical development of the district’s students. Students also learn to make healthy decisions in a supportive and challenging environment and learn to build positive relationships and respect for themselves and each other in order to help build students’ self-esteem. The social-psychological strand of the physical education curriculum promotes positive relationships between students, as well as safety in physical activities and performance. Students learn how to work effectively with one another, including providing encouragement and positive feedback.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision
Early Decision (ED) applications can seem really appealing to many students, and they’ve grown in popularity because of this, but there can also be some drawbacks to them. ED applications are typically due November 1st. This can be a difficult deadline to hit when it comes to test scores, which might not be released until after the deadline. If a student already has test scores completed, then getting finished with an application early can be a relief, or it can be a challenge in itself. The biggest drawback many perceive to ED is that it is binding. This means that students sign a contract agreeing to attend this college if accepted. So, even if the students applies elsewhere and receives a better financial package, they are contractually obligated to attend this college. This can be a real problem for students with financial difficulties.
