Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cherokee District Curriculum
The Iowa Core Curriculum provides a scope and sequence for learning in Literacy, Math, Science, Social Studies, and 21st Century Skills. Grade-level expectations for each subject are provided, and teachers are able to work together to find areas of overlap so that they may integrate the teaching and learning of different subjects. Students are assessed annually on the grade-level expectations set out in the Iowa Core and these are used to demonstrate each student's proficiency and readiness for the year ahead.
The district strives to implement the Characteristics of Effective Instruction and the Universal Constructs. The Characteristics of Effective Instruction are Teaching for Understanding, Student-Centered Classrooms, Teaching for Student Differences, Rigor and Relevance, and Assessment for Learning. The Universal Constructs are Critical Thinking, Complex Communication, Creativity, Collaboration, Flexibility and Adaptability, and Productivity and Accountability. The district uses the curriculum mapping program Curriculum Manager to help align the curriculum.

Cherokee District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Cherokee Community School District serves slightly over 1,000 students in three schools. The district goals include successfully implementing initiatives that enhance teaching and learning, increasing the integration and the alignment of the Iowa Core Curriculum, and improving communication between all stakeholders within the district. Cherokee Middle School incorporates Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Testing to, as the name states, measure students’ academic progress in math, reading, and science three times a year. Data from these assessments helps drive instruction for the teachers and administrators.
We currently cover the following Cherokee-area school district: Cherokee Community School 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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Gap Years Program Ideas
Taking a gap year between high school graduation and college is becoming a common goal. Students who take this time from formal education come away with a willingness to face the education that is before them. For students that enjoy the city, they may want to look into a 10-month program called City Year. The volunteers work in groups of 6-12 members and help in schools as either tutors or mentors. They may also head youth leadership programs or help to revitalize neighborhoods. City Year is located in 17 areas and there are four times a year they accept applications. Only one out of four applicants are accepted, so it is good to get the applications in as soon as possible. To find more information students can check City Year.
