Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chelmsford District Curriculum
Grades 1-4 have incorporated the Essential Course of Study (ECOS)—an integrated approach to literacy that combines reading and writing. The requirements of the Common Core Standards have called for three major transitions in this area. First, there is an emphasis placed on text-based writing prompts, so these grades have begun using the Journeys curriculum, which provides background information to students who may not have as rich life experiences. Second, students must have experience writing in three genres: narrative, informational, and opinion. Lastly, educators must assess students’ progress using diagnostic, formative, and summative assessments during the school year.
In addition, first grade implements an early intervention Supportive Reading Program for students who appear to be at risk for struggling in reading. This program is designed to supplement the reading instruction in the regular classroom and is delivered several times a week in a small-group setting while guided reading, independent reading time, and literacy centers are going on in the general education classroom.

Chelmsford District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Chelmsford Public Schools are comprised of seven schools and 5,400 students. There are four elementary schools with grades K-4, two middle schools, and one high school. The district is also home to Chelmsford Integrated Preschool (CHIPS)—a rich early childhood program that is nationally accredited and provides diverse experiences for all children, including those with special needs. Chelmsford Public Schools produce three videos, found on their website, titled “Math with Matthew” that give students and parents a glance at the math classes, curriculum, and teachers at all three levels of the district.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Standards and Anchors
Standards are statements of what students should know, understand, and be able to do at the end of each grade level. The following example of a standard comes from the Pennsylvania Core Standards and is as follows: “Students write for different purposes and audiences. Students write clear and focused text to convey a well-defined perspective and appropriate content.” This is a general statement of student learning and is written as CC.1.4, which represents Common Core, the content area (English language arts is represented with a number one), and the number of the standard (this writing section is the fourth one listed in the English language arts standards). Underneath the general standards are anchors that describe each related skill that students should master. For instance, the third anchor for second grade under CC.1.4. is to “develop the topic with facts and/or definitions.” The complete standard—with its anchor—is written as CC.1.4.2.C., with the two representing second grade and the C indicating that it is the third anchor under that standard. Some anchors that need to be parsed out more also have bullet points underneath them.
