Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Carrboro District Curriculum
Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools have developed and posted an extensive “Academics FAQ” that provides parents and students with information on various aspects of the district’s curriculum and other academic-related services. The first question asks what the district’s curriculum is and explains that the district uses the Common Core State Standards, which align the Common Core and North Carolina Essential standards as well as describes what academic standards are—they outline the skills and concepts students should be able to acquire.
In the FAQ, it is also explained how the Core Secondary Math Pathways are used to prepare students for college and their careers, with rigorous content that requires students to think critically. The district also informs parents on why it is beneficial for their children to take AP courses in high school and how they are exposed to college-level material in these classes. College and career readiness is a common theme in the learning, and the district explains that this means that students are ready to be successful in postsecondary institutions.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Student Feedback for Students in the Middle
It is important to provide feedback on students’ performance, which can help explain the grades they received. The teacher comments should describe some things the student did well and what he/she could improve upon. Following is an example of teacher feedback on a middle schooler who received a cumulative grade of a ‘C’ on a social studies unit. During this unit, each student has completed several projects. The purpose of this unit was not only for the students to learn about their countries—as well as others—but also to work on their writing, research, and presentation skills. [Student’s name] has tremendously improved his summarization and organization skills in his writing, and this is reflected in his most recent pieces of writing. He sometimes has trouble following directions, leading to difficulties in answering test questions and responding accurately to essay prompts.
