Canton District and Curriculum
Canton Public Schools contain five schools and 3,125 students. The district’s mission is to develop each student academically and socially. The vision is that students are critical thinkers, curious and confident learners, and compassionate citizens—centered on the core values of academic excellence, an inclusive learning community, respectful relationships, and reflection and improvement. Canton’s goals are to provide a culture that cultivates proficiency for all, to make instructional and curricular decisions based on student data.
We currently cover the following Canton-area school district: Canton Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Canton District Curriculum
Canton Public Schools have implemented the Common Core State Standards for math and literacy. The curricula for all of the other content areas are based off of the 2011 Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks; however, Common Core calls for specific literacy requirements to be infused into other subjects. Additionally, the Science and Technology curriculum is being reviewed, and, with the transition to the new standards, the district is examining new ways to ensure that instruction aligns both horizontally—in all classes of a grade level—and vertically—from year to year.
Each academic department in every school in the district has its own mission statement. Students use the Journeys English language arts program, which focuses on all of the following areas of literacy: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing. Canton provides learning expectations for each grade and content area.

Chalk Talk: Student Teachers
Student teachers model pre-professional learning, and so, should get to know teachers around the school, the school principal, other staff such as secretaries and custodians, and students’ families. The students’ parents may volunteer at the school during field trips, holiday parties, or other school functions, and even though they can be intimidating, student teachers should converse with them. Before starting student teaching, it is a good idea to prepare a letter to be sent home to the students’ parents that introduces oneself and explains the student teaching role that he/she will have in their child’s classroom. Student teaching is essentially like a full-time job (without the paycheck, of course), so it is critical to always be professional, being punctual and dressing appropriately. Student teachers are viewed as staff members, so it is mandatory to attend and actively participate in faculty meetings and in-service sessions. Student teachers should also make an effort to become involved in extracurricular activities in the school.
