Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cohasset District Curriculum
In elementary school, students learn at different paces so teachers use differentiated instruction and learning requires flexibility in the instructional techniques, classroom organization, and assessment methods that are employed. The progression of the curriculum must be evaluated regularly; progress means that students gain the expected skills, concepts, and understandings without the need for repetition of or modifications of the instruction. The district strives to connect curriculum, instruction, and learning as a continuous cycle.
Cohasset Public Schools utilize several resources to ensure that 21st century learning skills are being cultivated in the district’s schools. One of these includes “2020 Forecast,” which outlines the key changes that will take place in learning over the next decade. Next, 21st Century Skills Maps assist teachers in implementing information and communication technologies to enhance learning while making sure it is still relevant. The Partnership for 21st Century Skills has a range of tools and resources for helping teachers foster and implement 21st century learning skills.

Chalk Talk: What Do Assistant Principals Do?
Many schools—though not all—have an assistant principal. They are more common at the middle and high school levels. They are second on the totem pole behind principals. They are important because they often complete many of the same tasks as principals and, hence, help relieve some of the workload from them. Assistant principals are responsible for many administrative tasks, such as adjusting class schedules, hiring new staff and evaluating teacher performance, implementing school programs and initiatives, ensuring the school has the equipment and materials it needs. Assistant principals handle many student behavioral issues, as students often do not visit the head principal unless they commit a severe misbehavior or have many offenses. They communicate frequently with parents about children's behavior and respond to concerns they may have. Assistant principal hopefuls typically need to have a Master's degree in an area such as educational leadership or administration.
