Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chicago Heights District Curriculum
The schools’ curriculs are based on the Illinois Common Core Standards, which are internationally benchmarked and intended to give all students equal access to a strong education. In English Language Arts, students focus on critical and analytical reading and writing. They read for comprehension but also are required to synthesize different texts and ideas as well as building compelling arguments using quality research and strong argumentation.
In Mathematics, students focus on foundational concepts on the primary school level, such as order of operations and numbers, in order to establish a firm foundation which is built upon incrementally. In Science classes, students observe and study the world around them and are asked to apply their learning to real-world problems and situations. In high school, students study engineering and advanced topics. The overall goal of this curriculum is to prepare students for post-secondary education and the workforce on a globally competitive level.

Chalk Talk: Keeping Track of College Applications
There are so many pieces to keep track of in a college application, and things can easily get lost. Some colleges have different deadlines for different elements, which adds even more confusion to the mix. There’s the application itself, which usually has a hard deadline, though some colleges will require the essay or some element of the application sooner. This application might be found on the college’s website or through the Common Application, which might also require an additional supplement. Then there are standardized test scores. This can be a challenge because it can take weeks after a test for scores to reach a college, and that’s only if you’re sending them automatically without looking at them first. You can check your scores online, usually several days before they come out in hard copy, but that means pushing the date back that the college will receive them, unless you rush them. Your high school has its own paperwork to keep track of, such as deadlines for recommendations, which adds even more to the chaos. It’s imperative to keep track of these deadlines. Consider making a spreadsheet for all the pieces of the application and the due dates. This way, you won’t miss any deadlines.
