Corvallis District and Curriculum
The goal of Corvallis District Schools is to grow students into world-class learners and vital members of society by challenging them, engaging them, and preparing them for future success. Part of achieving that future success, it is strongly felt, will come thought adopting the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These are a shared set of educational expectations in grades K-12 English, Math, and Sciences, endorsed nationwide, that will provide a consistent understanding and results in the real world.
We currently cover the following Corvallis-area school district: Corvallis School District 509J.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Corvallis District Curriculum
In conjunction with the CCSS, Corvallis School District has implemented the Standards-Based Report Card. Traditional report cards have typically given one letter grade for each subject, but the SBRC divides each subject area into lists of skill standards that students are responsible for learning, with a separate mark given for each individual standard. Parents, teachers, and students will now have a more complete and accurate gauge of progress toward achieving the curricular standards.
The Corvallis School District has also put into practice Career-Related Learning, activities designed to highlight and develop personal strengths that will translate to post-secondary education, career, and real life skills. With a purpose-driven approach focused on individual goals, students will be able to fine-tune their education and career goals, all before the leave the Corvallis K-12 School District.

Chalk Talk: How To Make Friends at a New School
We’ve all been there. New school. No familiar faces. Making new friends can be a daunting prospect for some, but it doesn’t have to be. There are some tips to help make the transition much easier: 1) Be confident. Everyone likes someone who appears secure in who they are, no matter the circumstances. And don’t worry if you don’t truly “feel” all that confident at first. Just put on a brave face and try your best. 2) Make eye contact, smile, and laugh. 3) Don’t be afraid to make the first move to find potential friends. Ask to share a lunch table, or a library desk. 4) Join clubs or after school activities. It’s a great way to find the common ground of shared interests. 5) Don’t be afraid to have your own opinion. If you are the fan of a sports team, or a TV show, speak up. 6) Remember names. It speaks volumes to people around you. It shows that you bothered to remember them, and who doesn’t like that feeling? And lastly, 7) Give compliments. If you note someone’s strengths in a subject, skill in a sport or activity, or even a great answer given in class…speak up!
